Intellectuals in a network: a new generation facing development – 2011, 20p.

No survey of intellectual production in a field as broad as that of development can claim comprehensiveness. The intention here is to concentrate on one expanding aspect that seems especially interesting, that of researchers involved in policies implemented through organizations of civil society, through government programs or through local municipal policies. Together these programs and policies have woven a very rich and productive web of interaction among academe, social movements, public policy making, and even industry. As the gap between conception and implementation has narrowed, the subjects have themselves changed. The search for answers has intensified, and a new understanding of the way in which dreams can lead to practical decision making for their realization has emerged. (L. Dowbor)

L.Dowbor – Economic Democracy: strolling through theories – Revised, and updated – march – 2011,136p.

Awareness about global warming, income concentration, destruction of life in our seas, petroleum depletion and other threatening catastrophes can no longer be avoided, we need more efficient forms of economic and social organization. Economic power has become the central element of political decision making and the power of the media also relies on corporations. Under these conditions, to limit democracy to its political expression is becoming increasingly less realistic, rendering us even more skeptical. For politics once again to make sense, we have to evolve to a more democratic concept of the economy itself. This essay presents in a simple way the various theories about economic alternatives in international literature and shows that there is a new outlook under construction that is worthwhile knowing.
