Have you ever asked yourself if there is a good alternative to the two main options for economic systems that are generally offered these days – Capitalism and Socialism? It seems like both systems have been tried in various ways but ultimately without much success. Power consolidates and the system fails. The most success we’ve had is when they are combined into a sort of hybrid.
It turns out there is another system out there called Distributism, which is a type of Syndicalism where ownership is spread out more evenly and things are more locally controlled. I read an article recently called “Systems That Suck Less” which really helps clear a few things up and explain this interesting alternative which may hold the key to our economic salvation. It’s long but worth a read!
