  Anarchism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Following classical socialist theory, many anarchists argue that the State is not a natural phenomenon and that many tribal societies were egalitarian and lacked division of labour, accumulated wealth, or decreed law, and had equal access to resources.
Anarchists argue that pursuit of these ends does not justify the establishment of a state; many argue that the state is incompatible with those goals and the cause of chaos, violence, and war.
Anarchist People of Color, (or APOC), was created as a forum for non-Caucasian anarchists to express their thoughts about racial issues within the anarchist movement, particularly within the United States.

 Individualist anarchism - Libertarian Wiki
The most famous individualist anarchist, Benjamin Tucker refers to his philosophy as "unterrified Jeffersonianism." The individualists adhere to a labor theory of value and therefore find profit in trade to be exploitation that is made possible by coercive "monopolies," backed or created by the state, which reduce competition.
Individualist anarchists regard the most foundational differences between their economic philosophy (mutualism) and anarcho-communism to be the issue over the ownership of the produce of labor.
As economic theory advanced, the popularity of the labor theory of value of classical economics was superceded by much greater acceptance of the subjective theory of value of neo-classical economics.

 Anarchist Theory FAQ Version 5.2
As might be expected, different groups of anarchists are constantly trying to define anarchists with different views out of existence, just as many Christians say that their sect is the only "true" Christianity and many socialists say that their socialism is the only "true" socialism.
Anarchists of all varieties would reject this argument; sometimes claiming that the critic misunderstands their position, other times that the critic's assumptions are too pessimistic.
The interpretation of "rulership," however, varies: left anarchists tend to see the employer-employee relationship as one of rulership, and anarcho-capitalists are often dubious of the claim that envisaged anarchists communes would be democratic and hence voluntary.

Participatory Economics (Parecon) has been described as an Anarchist Economy because of its principles of Self-Management and equity, which are intended to challenge hierarchy and other authoritarian apparatus.
One of the most common questions posed by anarchists looking at the parecon model concerns the existence, or nonexistence, of a state in a society with a functioning participatory economy.
Many Anarchists and thinkers in general, whilst recognising the immense advantages which Communism may offer to society, yet consider this form of social organisation a danger to the liberty and free development of the individual.

What the anarchists needed was to base their economics less on moral arguments than on a positivist materialism.
Some sort of workable economic program had to be agreed upon by the labor movement, which had broad appeal to the various socialist and labor groupings that made up the International, without locking everyone into something they might regret later.
The Collectivist Legacy The main contribution of the collectivists to anarchist economics was their attempt to anticipate many of the problems which would be encountered during the revolutionary transition from capitalism to stateless communism, and their emphasis on the need for finding a balance between ultimate goals and day-to-day realities.

 Participatory Economics - A Theoretical Alternative to Capitalism
Anarchist thought and practice has always criticized capitalism as a social and economic system.
Mostly anarchists and other agitators argue that a vision is not important at all, that no one can predict what the new world will look like and that having a vision is authoritarian.
Michael Albert notes that participatory economics should not be taken as a blueprint, but as a “broad understanding of new institutions to inform our dissent.”(7) Kropotkin similarly wrote that a “book is not a gospel to be taken in its entirety or to be left alone.

All of this points to anarchist economics being a living and dynamic tradition, but one that has perhaps moved in some directions that its "founders" could not have anticipated.

The controversial anarchist trend known as primitivism is seen by many as a form of neo-Rousseauian radical ecology, but in fact it emerged out of the libertarian Marxism of the post-1960s' period, and it still retains many of the characteristics and philosophical categories of that style of thought.

NOTE: This rather lengthy posting is excerpted from part 2 of an article on Kropotkin's approach to economics (which originally ran in Libertarian Labor Review issues #11 and #12 as part of our ongoing series on anarchist economics), addressing issues such as labor vouchers and free distribution.
Instead, economics should be approached from the standpoint of consumption--of human needs.
But the fundamental point, for Kropotkin, was that people must seize control of their economic destiny--must be prepared to experiment with new processes and new methods of organization while taking advantage of the existing methods to meet immediate needs.

 Masood Mortazavi's Weblog
What is interesting is the casting of it in terms of transaction cost economics, an approach which becomes most interesting when authors like Douglass North apply it to the evolution of economic structures through history.
In fact, a large part of what we think of as economic activity is designed to accomplish what high transaction costs would otherwise prevent or to reduce transaction costs so that individuals can freely negotiate and we can take advantage of that diffused knowledge of which Hayek has told us.
I know of only one part of economics in which transaction costs have been used to explain a major feature of the economic system and that relates to the evolution and use of money.
