Economics for Anarchists — A Review

This is a review of four books, all of which are focused on alternative community systems for the distribution of money. Lindenfeld, a long time activist in the movements for workers’ control, applies his experience in judging the adequacy of new monetary systems. He presents thirteen anti-capitalist principles by which he assesses an alternative currency. Each of the books reviewed shares a focus on localism in both production and consumption.
