Review


"Tom Malleson's After Occupy provides an exceptionally insightful and nuanced defense of economic democracy. It combines sophisticated philosophical analysis of normative issues with careful empirical discussion of the actual practice of democracy in different kinds of economic institutions. The discussion never indulges in simple cheer-leading for democratic principles, yet also never loses sight of the serious aspirations for a meaningfully democratic world. It is a superb piece of work." --Erik Olin Wright, Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison and author of EnvisioningReal Utopias


"This is a wonderful book-concise, well-argued, impassioned. Our present political system is broken. Our present economic system is broken. But, argues Malleson, another world is possible, a far better world-not pie-in-the sky, but a 'realistic utopia, ' the key institutions of which can be specified and rigorously defended, for elements of this 'new world' are already present and have been carefully studied. As Malleson makes clear, our future is not determined. It could be the economic/environmental dystopia toward which neoliberal capitalism is taking us-or a sane, humane, genuinely democratic world. Malleson's clear-eyed analysis offers reasons for hope." --David Schweickart, Professor of Philosophy, Loyola University of Chicago


"Drawing on and integrating a wealth of knowledge from political philosophy and political economy, as well as his rich appreciation of existing examples of economic democracy from around the world, Tom Malleson convincingly argues for Economic Democracy as a feasible and desirable alternative to which 21st-century economic justice movements should aspire. This book offers all the key components of a comprehensive alternative vision: close analysis and critique of existing economic structures, careful thought about how workplaces and investment might be democratized, and clear moral thinking about why such an altern

This book offers all the key components of a comprehensive alternative vision: close analysis and critique of existing economic structures, careful thought about how workplaces and investment might be democratized, and clear moral thinking about why such an alternative is so badly needed. Rigorously argued and engaging all the hard questions, After Occupy is an accessible and essential one-stop shop for academics and activists serious about creating a democratic alternative to the failing status quo." --Thad Williamson, Associate Professor of Leadership Studies and Philosophy, Politics, Economics and Law, University of Richmond

"After Occupy is a stimulating book worth reading for anyone concerned with increasing inequalities and serious about investigating alternative ways to organize socio-economic cooperation." -- Thomas Ferretti, Ethical Perspectives


"Malleson's emphasis on the trade-offs of democratising the economy make him an important and original voice in contemporary radical economics." -- Elliot Murphy, The New Left Project


"After Occupy is a stimulating book worth reading for anyone concerned with increasing inequalities and serious about investigating alternative ways to organize socio-economic cooperation." -- Thomas Ferretti, Ethical Perspectives





"Compared to most contemporary social science literature, After Occupy is an unusual book. It not only provides an incisive critique of society generally and the world of work specifically; but also provides a radical and achievable alternative. The normative principles which guide the research are explained and justified in a refreshingly upfront manner, providing the book with a clear purpose and sense of direction which make for a highly engaging read." --Work, Employment, and Society


"Though his efforts seem unlikely to please everyone -- perhaps most notably those in concerted alignment with neoliberalism, and those who might be quick to flatly reject any proposition that sustains so much of the basic form of society -- Malleson argues compellingly for a thorough re-examination of economics through a 'democracy' lens. His focus on non-revolutionary change, and his insistence on building up from already existing systems and processes, lends plausibility to his ideas." --Canadian Journal of Nonprofit and Social Economy Research
