Themes : An alternative vision of the economy
The Economy of Labour text discusses the limits and uncertainties of the capitalist economy, highlighting the main methods for dealing with them. The possibility is raised of developing an economy centred on labour in order to satisfy everyone’s needs and promoted by several solidarity-based relationships. The economy of labour system would have the capacity to take action and to breathe life into projects that promote quality of life in a more egalitarian, fairer and self-determined society.
