Economics affects everyone. The following is an easy introduction to an economic system that is designed for human beings – rather than corporations. Here you will find links to the Parecon project that will give you a feel for the idea.

You will find a comprehensive intro and explanation of Parecon, all the audio links, the book, to buy, or read on-line at the ZNet site.
A small selection of related links can be found at the top. I hope you find this small intro useful, and it will, perhaps, encourage further interest in the subject. As usual, We welcome input and comment particularly in a local context – As in Common Good Fund
