he Challenge of Market Socialism – Challenges to Market Socialism
The workshop will include eight to nine talks. Each speaker will be given a slot of 75 minutes (about 25 minutes for presentation and 50 minutes for discussion). Draft versions of the papers are shared among all participants two weeks before the workshop, thus speakers can focus on the key points of their papers in the oral presentation. The first day will focus on the concept, history and value of market socialism and its implementation. The second day will focus on criticisms of market socialism and also discuss possible alternatives like property-owning democracy or democratic planning. A selection of the papers will be published in a Special Issue of the “Review of Social Economy”.
