- Published on July 19, 2015AUDIO

We examine workers self-directed enterprises: how they work and how they compare to capitalist enterprises.

We begin our 3-week experiment with a new format: two in-depth analyses, one in each half of the show. We begin by considering the different meanings of class, class analysis and class struggle across human history and why those differences matter so much now. Today's second half explores how socialism evolved from a basic alternative to capitalism into a state capitalism not so different from private capitalism.
