Economic Policy

This section on left economic policy presents important contributions to the debate on socialist economic policies relating to various levels of government and society. The core issue is the establishment of the control over capital. The introduction of an investment contribution in addition to the social contribution of the salary and the democratic control over those investment funds is the most important reform necessary to establish a democratic economy (See also Socialisation of Investment). However, the concrete situation of the 2nd World economic crisis of capitalism demands the consideration of a wide variety of themes.
