Envisioning Real Utopias - Erik Olin Wright

Envisioning Real Utopias - Erik Olin Wright

“Hugely rich and stimulating, Envisioning Real Utopias is many books in one: an incisive normative diagnoses of the harms done by capitalism; a masterful synthesis of the best work in political sociology and political economy over the past thirty years; an innovative theoretical framework for conceptualizing both the goals of progressive change and the strategies for their achievement; an inspiring survey of actually existing…

The Penguin and the Leviathan: The Triumph of Cooperation Over Self-Interest

Here’s a quit extensive synthesis of  “The Penguin and the Leviathan,” in my opinion a wonderful book for anyone who is interested in improving and transforming our economic and political institutions.

Initiative to form an International Debtors' Party

Via Dmytri Kleiner:

 

Debtors' of The World Unite! The Initiative to form an International Debtors' Party.

Congratulations to the Pirate Party having won an astounding 8.9% in the Berlin elections.



As I wrote two weeks ago, this is their moment of relevance, the emergence of Information politics as a mainstream political topic. Having 15 Piratenpartei representatives in the local government will certainly be of direct material benefit to activists fighting…
