Excerpt: prospects for a social economy

February 10, 2011 § Leave a comment

“In order for civil society to remain intact, and not simply to become a pawn of economic and political systems, the interfaces among these macrostructures must maintain their identity and integrity. Specifically, the civic sector and public sphere must remain responsive to the imperatives of civic society and not become fully colonized by the economic system and administrative state. This is a structural reason why the prospects for a social economy are so important.”
