I found John E Roemer theory on Market Socialism very interesting to read. He details that there would be two forms of money, dollars (or pounds) and coupons which would be used to buy shares in companies. A very fascinating read. The book also provides critiques from others about John's theory and they too are well thought out and written. Although, I found the feminist response a bit depressing (But only because I'm antifeminist) other than that a worth while book for anyone interested in socialism and it's long turn future.

HASH(0x88e226cc) out of 5 stars intellectually and societally challenging 12 May 2007
By Robert M. Kincey - Published on Amazon.com

This book requires true open-mindedness and personal questioning. If one ponders with reasonable sincerity about the growing poverty and the increasing gap between the rich and the poor, considering solutions - as opposed to socio-economic band-aids, perhaps this approach might be taken more seriously... albeit impractical for the capitalist societies. It should be more broadly read and debated to stimulate true solution thinking, perhaps with a different editorail approach for the pragmatic mindsets.
