Beyond the Market

Retrial – with thorough economic analysis. The author is searching the fundament of socialism in radically rejecting relations of production based on wage labour and competitive market relations. From this point of view, any idea on market socialism can only be a dead end, contrary to democratic planning established by the political economy of the labour class. In addition to meeting basic needs, this should also provide healthy environment and promote "the absolute unfolding of man's creative abilities" -"an end-in-itself".
