A world without money: communism - Les Amis de 4 Millions de Jeunes Travailleurs

Un Monde Sans Argent: Le Communisme was originally published in three parts, as three separate pamphlets, in France, between 1975-6. It was produced by Dominique Blanc, shortly after the dissolution of the Organisation des Jeunes Travailleurs révolutionnaires. The name Quatre Millions de Jeune Travailleurs was apparently 'adopted' from a 1971 PSU youth publication (Parti Socialiste Unifié - a French Socialist Party), presumably to satisfy French publishing laws, and texts continued to be published under this name through the 1970's including the widely distributed tract A Bas Le Proletariat/Vive Le Communisme.

As capitalism continues to disintegrate, this article looks at the egalitarian origins of money in ancient Greece for clues as to how we might transcend the whole money system.
