Anarchist Accounting: accounting principles for a democratic economy

August 13, 2021

Anders Sandström presents a talk from the ‘Crisis of the Nation State – Anarchist Answers’ conference, which was held at the Freiburg University of Education in March 2021. The presentation is about accounting principles for a Participatory Economy.

Here is a section from the blurb of the book Anarchist Accounting:

‘It explores what information and transactions we need to enable democratic and effective financial decisions by those affected by the decisions. Based on the economic model, participatory economics, the author proposes a set of accounting principles for an economy comprised of common ownership of productive resources, worker and consumer councils, and democratic planning, promoting the model’s core values.’
