  Coordinatorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Coordinatorism is an economic system in which control is held neither by people who own capital, nor by the workers, but instead is held by an intervening class of coordinators, typically in the roles of managers, administrators, engineers, university intellectuals, doctors, lawyers.
From a socialist perspective, coordinatorism suffers from the same problems as capitalism, and fosters the same injustice, since a small group of powerful individuals controls the means of production and the allocation of resources, while the vast majority of the population (the workers) is not involved in the economic decision-making process.
From a Marxist and communist perspective, coordinatorism replaces one ruling class with another, by placing the coordinators in the same positions that were once occupied by the capitalists, and thus the exploitation of the workers remains the same and coordinatorism is viewed as being essentially identical to capitalism.

 Coordinatorism
Coordinatorism is an economic system in which control is held neither by people who own capital, nor by ordinary workers, but instead is held by an intervening class of coordinators, typically in the roles of managers, administrators, engineers, university intellectuals, doctors, lawyers.
Although coordinatorism is commonly associated with socialism as was practised in Eastern European Communist states during the second half of the twentieth century, where the allocation of production and consumption tasks was highly centralised, it may also occur where allocation happens through the market.
An economic vision which claims to genuinely give power to "the workers" to fully participate in conceptual, administrative, and creative tasks, in contrast to both capitalism and coordinatorism, is the participatory economics model.

Coordinatorism 1 could operate coherently with a system of wages and prices that were political compromises designed to both reward elites and to pacify “the masses,” since production decisions under central planning need not be based on wages and prices.
But Coordinatorism 2 is no more an economy in which workers and consumers participate in democratically planning their joint endeavors and in which economic rewards are based on effort, or on sacrifice for the common good, than was Coordinatorism 1.
While Coordinatorism 2 is not intrinsically inferior to capitalism on efficiency grounds and may well be better on equity grounds, it has nothing to do with socialism and is even harder to confuse with the kind of economy socialists find desirable than was Coordinatorism 1.

 Participatory economics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Participatory economics, or parecon, a participatory economics system proposed as an alternative to other systems such as capitalism and coordinatorism, emerged from the work of the radical theorist Michael Albert and of the radical economist Robin Hahnel, beginning in the 1980s and 1990s.
Only the interests of buyer and seller are considered in a typical market transaction, but people who can be affected by the transaction have no voice in it.
Although a participatory economy probably falls under the left-wing political tradition (and also under the anarchist political tradition), it is specifically designed to avoid the creation of powerful intellectual elites ("coordinatorism"), the trap into which the economies of the communist countries of the 20th century fell.

 Dear Robert
Coordinatorism's ruling class monopolizes decision-making, higher education, and material perks above the heads of traditional workers.
In coordinatorism central planning ensures that workers obey orders (as in the Soviet Union), or that markets elevate technocratic accounting while subordinating workers to coordinator intellectuals and managers (as in Hungary).
Coordinatorism distributes productive responsibilities so some people do primarily conceptual, administrative, and creative tasks (the coordinators), while others do primarily rote and delegated tasks (the workers), with the former ruling the latter.

 Maass: Marxism vs. Coordinatorism
Actually, he spends the first third of the article on other half-developed criticisms--the supposedly soul-deadening obscurity of dialectics; Marxism’s alleged insufficient attention to gender, race, polity and the environment; the inadequacies of the labor theory of value and Marxist crisis theory.
I’ve argued that I think Albert is wrong to say Marxism "literally denies the existence" of the middle class and wrong in his understanding of the nature of this social layer and its capability of taking independent class action, much less establishing a new mode of production.
They were in at least some cases carried out by sections of the middle class, in the name of "the people." The new society was run by an elite that, to varying degrees, relied on centralized planning, bureaucratic control and public ownership to organize the economy.

While their class structures and internal dynamics yield different allocations of wealth and income, in one respect these two systems closely resemble each other: "labor is external to the worker." Ironically, these words that Marx wrote to describe capitalism apply as well to coordinatorism.
Coordinatorism distributes productive responsibilities so that some people (the coordinators) do primarily conceptual, administrative, and creative tasks, while others (the workers) do primarily rote tasks defined by others; that is, the former rule the latter.

 Excerpt from the introduction  to Looking Forward
But the promise of economic liberation has always been to distribute productive responsibilities so that everyone has a fair share of opportunities for performing conceptual and executionary labor with all workers thereby entitled and prepared to play a proportionate role in determining events.
So the choices for modem economic institutions are threefold capitalism, coordinatorism, and what we call "participatory economics." The failure of coordinatorism doesn't imply that the only remaining option is capitalism.

Whatever you decide to call the economies of the Soviet Union, China, and Eastern Europe - we prefer the term "coordinatorism' - it is critical to realize that they are not now and never have been egalitarian and participatory.
If we don't realize that, we cannot understand the roots of their current crisis or alternative possibilities.

Participatory economics, often abbreviated parecon, is a proposed economic system that uses participatory decision making as an economic mechanism to guide the allocation of resources and consumption in a given society.
Proposed as an alternative to contemporary capitalist market economies and also an alternative to centrally planned socialism or coordinatorism.
Although participatory economics falls under the left-wing political tradition as well as also under the anarchist political tradition, it is described as being specifically designed to avoid the creation of powerful intellectual elites or coordinatorism, which is perceived as the trap into which the economies of the communist states of the 20th century fell.

Centralized planning, of course, meant coordinatorism in the economy and totaltiarianism in the polity, but even if it meant only the former, I'd still reject it.
You'd next have to either prove that the system I advocate consistently turns into coordinatorism (possible, but not too likely), or that markets are superior to parecon anyways.
Oh, and yes, "coordinatorism" is what Marx called the Soviets, not what we advocate, we advocate "parecon".

Here's my argument: Socialism doesn't work first because you can't substitute politics (plans) for the market and get anything like a rational allocation of resources, and second because without the incentive to accumulate property most people are not going to work very hard.

 Conservative Revolutionary American Party: Class or Multitude
Whatever we call it, and however we feel about it, this economy has public or state ownership, corporate divisions of labor, hierarchical decision making, and either markets or central planning for allocation.
Second, trying to hammer all the varieties of economic possibility into a bi-polar framework of a bad capitalist economy pitted against a good economy that a multitude will win ignores that anti-capitalists can in fact seek a future that is classless or revolutionaries can seek a future that has coordinators dominating workers.
I favor using concepts like man, woman, mother, father, fl, white, religion, nationality, ethnicity, citizen, order giver, and order taker, and others as well, of course, for understanding the key dynamics of current families, cultures, and political structures, and for envisioning future improvements as well.

But even more, this coordinator class can actually become the ruling class of a new economy with capitalists removed and with workers still subordinate.
That is, Marxism obscures the existence of a class which not only contends with capitalists and workers within capitalism, but which can become ruler of a new economy, aptly called, I think, coordinatorism.
Finally, the really damning point is that this new economy that I call coordinatorism, is familiar.
