      Capitalism is an economic system in which private individuals and/or companies own the four factors of production. (The four factors are land, capital, land/natural resources, and entrepreneurship.) Additionally, investments are made based on private decision-making rather than that of the public/government. 'What do you want?' is a constant query put to economic and globalization activists decrying current poverty, alienation and degradation. In this highly praised new work, destined to attract worldwide attention and support, Michael Albert provides an answer: Participatory Economics, 'Parecon' for short, a new economy, an alternative to capitalism, built on familiar values including solidarity.

This condition is characterized by the obligation to always be “on,” the better.
