Workers' self-directed enterprises

From handling crises to social transformation

«The idea of workers self directed enterprises is that the workers displace and replace the capitalists with themselves. This has to be the next step in the process of transformation.» 

"A new socialist movement only stands a chance if it focuses on the transformation of the economic structure. The self-management of businesses represents a hitherto neglected dimension of past radical transformation experiments . Only this way can we build on the achievements of previous social struggles and not have to start all over again. The self-management of enterprises by workers must therefore be placed at the centre of our political, economic, analytical and programmatic focus. "(Richard D. Wolff)
