Ronald Reagan's Speech on Project Economic Justice  

The Presidential Task Force on Project Economic Justice--In 1985, Center for Economic and Social Justice (CESJ) members initiated and mobilized bipartisan support for Congressional legislation which established the Presidential Task Force on Project Economic Justice under President Ronald Reagan. Project Economic Justice, which was first conceived in a strategy paper authored by CESJ, offered a revolutionary economic alternative to military solutions to regional conflicts in Central America and the Caribbean. Enacted as part of the International Security and Development Cooperation Act of 1985, this legislation created the first presidential task force to be totally funded with private donations and supported by both the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the AFL-CIO. Former Ambassador to the Organization of American States and the European Community, The Hon. J. William Middendorf II, served as Chairman. CESJ's president, Norman G. Kurland, served as deputy chairman.

The Economic Effects of Profit Sharing in Great Britain 

There are a number of ways to have workers' remuneration linked more readily with firms' commercial performance. One is to link wages to profits by using cash-based profit sharing (where workers are made cash payments which vary with employer's profitability). A second is to have workers paid partly in their firms' own shares. A third, and more extreme alternative, is producer co-operatives where workers participate in profits, ownership and decision-making. In this article we examine both the theoretical and empirical evidence in support of such schemes.

Workplace Democracy: The Political Effects of Participation 

The concept of workplace democracy has long been vitally important to theorists and activists of the democratic Left. The author here tests some of the claims made for this system, asking: Do such alternative forms of work organization really decrease workers' sense of alienation? Does participation in a democratic, cooperatively run business encourage political participation? Does such a workplace foster class consciousness as a strategy for superseding capitalism?
