Participatory economics, or shortened to parecon, is a theorized economic model that is proposed as an alternative to capitalism. Historically, parecon shares many characteristics with the economic and political system called socialism. Shared property of production is one of the major tenets of parecon, and it is the guiding principle of many of the goals and visions that parecon members have. We hope that through the education that we can provide, parecon will slowly spread to the awareness of people. And through that spread of awareness hopefully, people will be able to adopt it more.
This is a website that is run by and part of ZCom. ZCom is a community of people that are closely affiliated with parecon goals. The vision that parecon has also guided those within Zoom as well. Our organization’s politics and the policies that we have are all inspired by the goals of parecon. The goals of which are a more egalitarian society based on the equal distribution of wealth. And we hope that through the use of parecon on smaller scales in society, that small change can have a huge impact overall on society at large.
The vision of parecon was started more than two decades ago. And since then support of parecon has only grown. However, the history of the growth of parecon is a long one filled with difficulties. And this is due to the fact that many capitalists have had a strong negative reaction to the politics of parecon, and there has been a lot of pushback to the spread and influence of parecon. Despite all of that pressure to fade, parecon has only been slowly flourishing. Perhaps this is proof of the fact of the appeal and rightness of the politics of this new economic idea.
Many people around the world, and not just in the U.S, are supporting parecon. And we hope that through this website, we will be able to facilitate parecon as part of the growth of our movement. We aim to spread our ideals through grassroots activist’s movements and other similar kinds of methods. And we hope that through this approach from the bottom to the top of society, we will be able to affect change on a much large scale that has never happened before.
