(PDF) Peoples Republic of Walmart PDF Review 2019

Since the demise of the USSR, the mantle of the largest planned economies in the world has been taken up by the likes of Walmart, Amazon and other multinational corporations

For the left and the right, major multinational companies are held up as the ultimate expressions of free-market capitalism. Their remarkable success appears to vindicate the old idea that modern society is too complex to be subjected to a plan. And yet, as Leigh Phillips and Michal Rozworski argue, much of the economy of the West is centrally planned at present. Not only is planning on vast scales possible, we already have it and it works. The real question is whether planning can be democratic. Can it be transformed to work for us?

An engaging, polemical romp through economic theory, computational complexity, and the history of planning, The People’s Republic of Walmart revives the conversation about how society can extend democratic decision-making to all economic matters. With the advances in information technology in recent decades and the emergence of globe-straddling collective enterprises, democratic planning in the interest of all humanity is more important and closer to attainment than ever before.

 

Review

 

“An audacious and exciting vision. The kind of thing with the power to start a new movement…I haven’t stopped thinking about it since.”
–Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway and Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom

“A tour de force through the history of economic planning, from the dark heart of capitalism to the self-management of workers, from theearliest agricultural civilizations to the cybersocialists of thetwentieth century. Far from markets being the ahistorical basis ofsociety, it is conscious human planning that has repeatedly been at thecenter of economic life. In the midst of new technologies, imminentclimate change havoc, and economic stagnation, this book makes thepassionate and persuasive case that democratic socialist planning ismore necessary and more possible than ever before.” (PDF) Peoples Republic of
–Nick Srnicek, Inventing the Future and Platform Capitalism

“The People’s Republic of Walmart is a timely provocation. In the age of big data, challenging orthodoxies about planning is more necessary thanever…Philips and Rozworski’s book is a timely exhortation to rethinkthe wisdom that markets always do it better.”
–Hettie O’Brien, New Statesman. (PDF) Peoples Republic of

“An impressive accomplishment … the voice and writing style arewonderfully accessible without pandering. Here countless socialistarguments are presented clearly and powerfully, and I trust that it will give many others the confidence to speak as socialists.”
–Sam Gindin, coauthor of The Making of Global Capitalism. (PDF) Peoples Republic of
