The One Party Planet
¤ The Rules ¤ 9 November 2015
So just who is in charge of this planet? Is it a small group of people with one plan? A large group of people with lots of competing plans? Several groups of people? Does it even make sense to think of ‘control’ in these terms at all? This short pamphlet is an attempt to answer this question. The case I make is, yes, it not only makes sense to think of control in these terms, but it is essential. Those of us who believe in the potential for vastly less inequality and poverty, and a richer, (...) read more

Transfinancial Economics
¤ Robert Searle ¤ 28 July 2013
Essentially, Transfinancial Economics model (TFE) claims that new largely monitored non-repayable money could be created electronically by special transparent, and credible funding mechanisms, or Facilitation Banks (and/or by governments to some extent). This could notably fund, in full or in part, environmental, and socio-economic projects of high ethical value. This would help to speed things up unlike loans.... though interest free ones could also be created electronically when (...) read more

Seven Leverage Points for the Passage from Economy to Œconomy
¤ Pierre Calame ¤ 13 May 2011
The concept of leverage points is very well adapted for a coalition wanting to act in favor of the great transition. We need to identify some concrete issues which we think should have a strong leverage effect as it would imply changes in the whole system. And looking at what is the systemic change about, it would not be a surprise that these leverage points relate either to concepts or to actors or to the very tools which are used in present economy. Here are seven proposed leverage (...) read more

Winnowing Wheat from Chaff
¤ Robin Hahnel ¤ 26 March 2006
In this article, Hahnel analyzes the historical reasons of the successes and fails of both democratic and libertarian Socialisms along the XX century, as well as the role played of the new social movement activism, as a current successor of the later one. Then, the author establishes some clues or advices related to several current progressive actors like the different economic, social, community and human rights issues, proposals, related movements, unions, and others. Hahnel maintains (...) read more

A World Alliance against Social Apartheid
¤ Gustavo Marin ¤ 6 March 1995

These simultaneous forums, which preceded the Copenhagen Social World Summit, brought together the citizens of more than 60 countries and are the image of a world citizenship in formation, rooted in specific local realities and ready to take up contemporary challenges on a worldwide scale at one and the (...) read more
