Exploring Post-Capitalist Alternatives

What is economic democracy? To answer this question we will consider what lessons we can draw from socialist experiments throughout the world, and examine some of the big debates around a future post-capitalist economic system, such as the appropriate mix of democratic planning and markets. Participants will have a chance to discuss and contrast different alternatives to capitalism, the possible advantages and disadvantages of each approach, and what policies will be necessary for a just transition.
