In Better World, the author presents a broad overview of real and purely conceptual alternatives to the contemporary varieties of capitalism. They range from the platonic Guardian state to Morus’ Utopia and Kropotkin’s Anarchy. The second half of the book is dedicated to various forms of economic planning. It culminates in a stand-off between a model based on John Roemer’s fifth generation market socialism (coupon stock market) (Roemer and Bardhan 1994; also see Stauber 1997) and the Swedish welfare state.
