Γόνιμες Left Liberal Synthesis αναζητήσεις για την οικονομία

Παραθέτω αμέσως το τελευταίο μέρος του άρθρου του Phillip Blond - University of Cumbria στην Herald Tribune.

Ολίγον γενικευμένη χρήση του όρου Neo Liberalism ,και μερικές υπερβολές,αλλά η αναζήτηση του άκρως ερεθιστική ,στην κατέυθυνση του Αμερικάνικου Mutualism (free market anti capitalism)

Οχι στα μονοπώλια !!
Οχι στο κράτος πρόνοιας!!

Γιατί όχι??

Ολο το άρθρο στο τέλος της ανάρτησης

This in a nutshell is the problem: Both Left and Right seem incapable of challenging monopoly capitalism.

Neither welfarism nor statism can transform the lives of the poor, and neither, it seems, can neo-liberalism. Only a shared economy can correct the natural tendency of the free market to favor monopolies.

But we can only share if all own. Thus there is a radical and as yet unexplored possibility - that of a general and widely distributed ownership and use of assets, credit and capital.

This would dissolve the conflict between capital and labor since it would be a market without monopoly and a state where waged labor - since it was the owner of capital - did not need state welfare.
