Hey Gar, two more on left economics. The first question for many of these is what services and relationships will be turned into commodities. Is health care a right, or is it simple a good we purchase more or less of? What about education? And so on. What areas does the left need to focus on removing from the marketplace? And what perhaps should go into markets?
Second: A lot of “market socialism” on the left involves socializing who gets wealth from ownership, but it leaves the worker-boss relationship in place. You focus on a lot on how employee ownership can mitigate a lot of this – but how do you deal with the issue of “dirty jobs”, the toilets that need to be cleaned, the unglamarous or dangerous jobs that will exist in any world?
