What Are We For? Exploring Socialist Alternatives

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The purpose of this workshop is to help participants understand the historical and proposed alternatives to capitalism, and to debate their merits and disadvantages. We will play the "Comparative Systems" game that will clarify how different economic systems give different stakeholders decision-making power and influence important outcomes. We will conclude with a discussion of different new economy models and the democratic planning vs. market socialism debate.
