“A democratically planned socialist economy – perhaps along the lines of Pat Devine’s model of negotiated coordination – offers the best hope of realizing the values of the anti-capitalist movement.” Alex Callinicos, King’s College, London

“In this fascinating book, which deserves to be widely read, Pat Devine raises numerous important and interesting questions about the management of the economy.” Times Higher Education

An excerpt from the new preface:
This book was first published in 1988, the year before the Berlin wall came down and three years before the Soviet Union collapsed. The short-lived era of free-market capitalist triumphalism that followed was not an auspicious time for a book on economic planning. Since then, growing awareness of the depth of the ecological and social crisis facing us, together with the most severe economic crisis since the 1930s, has rekindled belief that ‘another world is possible’, a post-capitalist world. But what would such a world look like, in particular, how would economic activity in such a world be organised? The model of democratic planning through negotiated coordination set out in Part IV of the book offers an answer to this question by outlining a possible architecture for the institutions and processes through which a self-governing society might operate.
