Le cooperative di produzione come nuovo modo di produzione


  • Bruno Jossa


Producer Co-operatives as a New Production Mode (by Bruno Jossa) - This paper collects some simple ideas. A system of producers cooperatives it argues is a new production mode in the sense of Marx. The LMF type of cooperatives reverses the existing capital/labour ratio and may realize a revolution also if the foundation of new cooperatives proceeds step by step in a capitalistic economy. A centralized economy without labour managed enterprises does not realizes socialism. The fundamental contradiction of capitalism is not the contradiction between plan and market, but the contradiction between capital and labour. Control of economic activity, the socialist view, must be realized through labour managed enterprises, not through state controlled enterprises. JEL Classification: P13, P2, B5, P50
