Economic Democracy
The Working Class Alternative to Capitalism

By Allan Engler  

Lifelong trade unionist and social activist Engler describes and analyzes capitalism from the perspective of the working class, and makes the case that a working-class alternative to wage slavery is economic democracy. People who work for a living already do everything required to support themselves and society, he argues, and need capitalists a little less than they need tapeworms. His topics include malevolent capitalist markets, war as capitalist enterprise, workplace democracy, labor as the source of exchange value, the elitism of central planning, living in harmony with nature, early working-class gains and losses, and the limits of pro-capitalist reform.
