Arguing that socialism could return to the center of political life in advanced capitalist countries, this book aims to convince socialists and nonsocialists alike that there is both a strong moral case for economic democracy and a feasible strategy for achieving it. The author defines economic democracy as a system in which firms operate in a market economy but are governed by their workers.
