Sulla transizione dal capitalismo all'autogestione


  • Bruno Jossa

    () (Universitˆ â Federico IIâ Napoli)


A system of firms managed by the workers, if organized in the LMF form as suggested by Vanek, realizes a new method of production, one of the possible forms of a market based socialism. Thus, it is interesting to investigate the issue of a transition from capitalism to the new mode of production. This is the main aim of the present article. The economic literature on the transition to socialism deals with many issues, but for the most part it is based on the idea tha t socialism must necessarily imply centralized planning. However, the problems posed for a socialist system in which firms are managed by workers are not entirely different. Rather, in this case the difficulties turn out to be smaller. This is true for many reasons, but chiefly because the cooperative system is a market system.
