Economic Democracy

Identifies unions, capitalist employers, and the government as the three actors with the most influence over the feasibility of any strategy for achieving economic democracy. The chapter considers the different ways in which these actors can organize both themselves and relationships between themselves. The degree of organizational centralization, the degree of class cooperation between unions and employers, and the degree to which the government and the two class actors are involved in each other's affairs, can be used to specify a wide variety of industrial relations systems. The chapter focuses special attention on one of these systems: corporatism.

Keywords:   centralization, class cooperation, corporatism, employers, government, industrial relations, unions
