The Participatory Economics Project "Participatory economics (or parecon for short) is the name of a type of economy proposed as a desirable alternative to contemporary capitalism." - My issue with these kinds of centralization and democratization of economics is they issue roadblocks to those who want to do interesting things, and just create a new kind of dicatorship (like the dictatorship of the proletariat). I'd like to see an interesting mix of participatory economics that is way more decentralized.
