Market Abolitionism

"Market abolitionism is a belief that the market, in the economic sense, should be completely eliminated from society. Market abolitionists argue that markets are morally abhorrent, anti-social and ultimately incompatible with human and environmental survival and that if left unchecked the market will annihilate both.

In large countries in the modern world, the only significant alternative to a market economy has been central planning or coordinatorism as was practiced in the early U.S.S.R and in the People's Republic of China before the 1990s. Other proposed alternatives to the market economy —participatory planning as proposed in the theory of Participatory economics ("Parecon"), and the idea of substituting a gift economy for a commodity exchange—have not yet been tried on a large scale in the modern industrialized world."
