Marc Batko

Publisher info

Freelance translator of German articles on alternative economics, rethinking state, market and neoliberal myths.
Profit-making is different than profit-maximizing. The neoliberal model promotes profits, not investments. All personal and corporate achievement depended on state investment in roads, schools, health care, food safety, water quality and airwaves.
The future could be full of free internet books, community centers, reduced working hours, shared work, exchanging roles, cloud workers, play, exuberance and mystery! The future that is open and dynamic not closed and static must be anticipated and protected in the present, not extrapolated from the present. (cf. Jurgen Moltmann)
