Perhaps one of the greatest paradoxes of the modern era is that, while capitalism is in perpetual crisis, there seems to be no alternative. Once upon a time, Soviet style central planning at least attempted to present an alternative paradigm. However, with the USSR gone and China embracing its own brand of state-led capitalist development, the prospects of a post-capitalist mode of economic organization appear more distant than ever. As discontent grows, both liberals and conservatives scramble for answers within the existing frameworks to questions of economic inequality, social alienation, and environmental crisis. But are there alternatives? Is it possible to organize the economy differently?
And is it possible to have a world without bosses?
