ANARCHIST ECONOMICS CLASS
bi-weekly class
Wed. 7:00 - 9:00 PM
class begins Feb. 2nd
room 208 Upper Level Student Union, Phelan Campus, CCSF



What type of economic systems will exist in an egalitarian,
self-managed society? What have anarchism and libertarian socialism
had to say about the structure and function of such an economy? The
purpose of this class is to provide a forum for discussion in an
attempt to answer these questions. We will start by defining
capitalism and with an overview of economic theory from an anarchist
perspective. We will then discuss one such economic framework,
participatory economics (parecon), in considerable detail. Once we
have a good grasp on the parecon model, we will discuss some of the
specific criticisms levelled against it, as well as other visions for
an egalitarian society such as libertarian communism and libertarian
municipalism.
Along with several provided articles, we will be reading "Parecon" by
Michael Albert. The book will be made available for purchase, but the
entire text is also available for free on the internet.
This will be a bi-weekly discussion class beginning Wednesday,
February 2nd (7pm to 9pm), and lasting throughout the Spring semester.

AS ALWAYS YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE ENROLLED AS A STUDENT AT CCSF TO ATTEND
EITHER OF THESE CLASSES.
