Worker's Control

Discipline: Political Science

Theory of industrial and economic power.

Production should be controlled by those directly engaged in it, rather than by nonproductive owners.

Workers' control - of which guild socialism is an example -is to be distinguished from revolutionary doctrines such as syndicalism or anarcho-syndicalism in that it does not seek to use economic power in order to sieze political power.
