Economic Democracy—Alternative to Corporate Rule
Where economic power is centralized, democracy is subverted. Centralization of economic power cannot coexist with a government that is of, by and for the people; centralization of economic power twists political power into government by, for and of the special interests. To end this tyranny, PROUT advocates economic democracy rather than political democracy. In political democracy there is universal voting rights and centralization of economic power, and with this comes the false promises of politicians, vote rigging, corruption, tyranny of state power, cronyism, and economic exploitation. To resolve the failures of political democracy, PROUT advocates economic democracy, in which the people enjoy maximum economic empowerment.
