Towards an Inclusive Democracy: The Crisis of the Growth Economy and the Need for a New Liberatory Project
Bloomsbury Publishing, May 1, 1997 - Political Science - 400 pages
An analysis of the growth economy, this book traces the causes of the present crisis in the modern market system, initiated two centuries ago with the establishment of the market economy system which has led to the present growth economy. It concludes that a true democracy can only be derived from a synthesis of the democratic and socialist traditions, along with the radical green, feminist and libertarian ideologies. To this end, this text offers a new vision of an inclusive democracy.
