]At a time of rapid change in Central and Eastern Europe, there is widespread interest in alternative forms of market economy. Is it possible to combine the best features of capitalism with the best features of socialism? The first part of the volume examines the idea of `Agathotopia' put forward by Nobel-Prize winner James Meade; the second with worker participation and economic democracy, including the Yugoslav experience and the third with partnership at macro- and micro-levels.
