Economics & Social Justice

Content I am hosting here includes:

The theoretical position I feel closest to is that of libertarian communism (classical anarchism); being pragmatic, I'm more of a market socialist in practice.

I have a page about money, ethical investment and sustainability. See also my free speech and free software and freedom of information pages. And the politics, economics, and social justice sections of my book reviews may be of interest.
