  1. Economic democracy, as it applies to human beings, is a system whereby members of society enjoy economic, social, and political equality. Underlying this philosophy is the belief that economic activity is best left to those who do it voluntarily rather than having the government control it through taxation. It also advocates a minimal state and regards the interests of the many as equal to those of the few. Social democracy is also a broad political theory, which regards economic and social democracy as essential for a democratic political system. It is also a form of liberalism, characterized
  2. What are the principles of economic democracy? These are questions many people ask, especially when they are hearing about the new theories of economics. The purpose of this article is to provide an explanation of these concepts so that you can make an informed decision on what kind of economy you want to live in. Economics is a very interesting field of study, but it can be very confusing at times. So if you have any questions, it is always a good idea to get an answer from an actual economic model. Economic Democracy, sometimes called economic socialism, is a political theory of
  3. What is economic democracy? Does it really make sense to work within an economic system with a democratic government? Or is it just another term for the status quo? What are the benefits and drawbacks of different types of economic systems, and what do we need to look for in a healthy system? The debate about economic systems has raged for some time now, and yet there has been little real attempt to reach a consensus on this important question. It seems we are all too caught up in individualistic self interests. One fact is apparent from the outset: in most businesses, the bu
  4. Neoliberals, like many other political thinkers, often define economic democracy as a form of economic rent-seeking by corporations and their allies in politics. For example, they believe that the welfare state protects corporate interests above individual liberty. They further claim that a return to free-market capitalism would hurt workers and consumers. Therefore, they favor protectionism over globalization. But do economics support these beliefs? Not in the least! As George Soros points out, there is a growing global economic crisis that the West has yet to fully recover from.
  5. There is a difference between economic democracy and economic liberalism. Some would argue that there is no difference at all because both are forms of government. However, parts of the world have different conceptions of democracy. Economic democracy is what most of the developed world calls an ideal type of government. It is considered to be a mix of capitalism and socialism. Parts of Europe are known for their social welfare systems while economically stagnant Northern Europe has been leading the way in implementing such systems for years. Political opinion in most of thes
  6. As part of our "Initiative grouping", this article is a brief explanation of economic democracy. The purpose of this short article is to offer an explanation of what economic democracy is, and how it differs from typical forms of direct democracy such as representative government or constitutional government. Direct democracy is a system whereby political parties select their own candidates for office and regulate public debate and policy making through a system of deliberative democratic processes. In contrast, economic democracy is about establishing a system of economic exchange, where gove
  7. Economic Democracy, sometimes called 'democratic-liberalism,' is a political philosophy which advocates the rule of socioeconomic classes in society. Economic democracy is a more socially feasible form of public control than do-it-yourself societies. In contrast to market-oriented systems, such as individual-based entrepreneurship, economic democracy assumes the active involvement of the governed, and the economic community. It also places a high importance on the informal social structure, with its emphasis on peer groups and civic organizations. The concept of economic democracy is most clos
  8. Economic democracy is a democratic socio-economic philosophy in contrast to socio-liberalism, liberalism, conservatism, empire, neo-liberalism, and social liberalism. Because of its long-standing historic support by powerful social democratic parties across Europe and their lasting impact on economic policy in Northern and Western Europe since the end of the cold war, socio-liberalism quickly became identified with liberalism, the Nordic Model, and Keynesianism. When public spending was high, liberal reform proposals stimulated economic growth and employment growth, although the welfare state
  9. Economic Democracy is defined as a political theory which opposes intervention in the economic affairs of nations, and advocates laissez fairer conditions in society. It is also known by the names; free-market capitalism, economic liberalism and social democracy. It is a political theory which is mostly associated with the philosophies of classical liberal thinkers. In general, economic democracy is a form of government in which there are a limited constitutional right to an economic life and an absence of extensive government control over the economy. Economic democracy is the idealistic beli
  10. A recent study by the World Bank suggests that economic democracy offers many distinct advantages over autocratic governments. Specifically, the author examines the nature of political institutions, the institutionalization of private property, the evolution of markets, the institutionalization of private property rights, and economic freedom, as well as the nature of economic growth itself. The author concludes that economic democracy is indeed a public benefit - indeed, a public value - superior to capitalism. However, from a different perspective, this benefit can also be considered an adva
  11. We can make a distinction between economics and other social science. Many times the distinctions are made by the academics in the field. Some people make a distinction between economics and psychology; they say that economics is totally different than psychology. The reality is that economics has many principles that are just the same in all the other social sciences. Principles of Economics: People make decisions based on principles of economics. People are rational human beings. If you took people who don't use barbells to train and they decide to buy a barbell, you can bet that
