Encroaching Control

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of workers' control, developed by British socialist, historian and political scientist George Douglas Howard Cole (1889-1959).

Workers' control of industry is to be achieved by a slow extension of power from the bottom up, until the overall balance of power within an industry, factory, or firm tips decisively in favor of the workers within it.
