The key to successful industrial development is a move away from free market systems. These systems constrain people's talents. They are characterised by concentrated decision-making power, leading to such problems as product market monopolisation, deindustrialisation and constrained technological change. In contrast, it is desirable to cultivate a diffuse, deconcentrated economic process where people are given new roles in society. We advocate a process where communities strategically plan their own futures and do so using markets as an instrument. Government industrial policies - for example measures to influence technological progress - should be designed and assessed in the context of nurturing such democratic economies.
