Equal shares : making market socialism work

John E. Roemer ; with contributions by Richard Arneson ...[et al.] ; edited and introduced by Erik Olin Wright

"Nice idea, but it doesn't work in practice." How often have socialists had this claim thrown back at them? And now, after the events of 1989, many of the Left are openly wondering what a defensible idea of socialism would be. This work addresses this question, taking as its point of departure John Roemer's model of "coupon socialism". Roemer's model aims to combine the market with a commitment to equality through a simple, yet starkly radical, proposal: all citizens would receive an equal number of coupons with which to buy ownership rights (voting, dividends) in companies. These coupons would constitute a second, separate form of currency, but could not be exchanged for ordinary money, nor transferred to other people. Not all the contributors to this collection endorse Roemer's working model of market socialism, but they are all stimulated by his foray into a "real utopia". The contributors are: Erik Olin Wright, Andrew Levine, Michael Burawoy, Fred Block, Joshua Cohen, Joel Rogers, Julius Sensat, Nancy Folbre, Thomas Weisskopf, William Simon, Debra Satz, Mieke Meurs, Louis Putterman, Frank Thompson, Harry Brighthouse and Richard Arneson. The book is based on Roemer's 1994 "A Future for Socialism". Erik Olin Wright is the author of "Interrogating Inequality", "Classes" and "Class, Crisis and the State".
