Edited by Stuart Holland

This work is the first to engage international contributors from four key Western European countries on the questions of economic planning. It demonstrates that planning can at best only modify the composition and rate of development when this is dependent on private profit expectations and on private criteria for the production of goods and services. It argues that capitalism cannot be planned in a welfare state context, and that a new model of development is needed, based on fundamental change in the mode and relations of production.
