Ellerman and Democracy in the Workplace

I recently was made aware of this book by David Ellerman, "The Democratic Worker-Owned Film". It has significant similarity with my efforts to clarify the theoretical roots of the socialist market system in my political theory; some of its foundations are fairly off by my metrics, but less so than any other philosophical take on economics I've read.

My own efforts started as an effort to rebase anarcho-syndicalism on state socialist theory, in order to give me a pluralist market system with democracy-in-the-workplace while letting me keep socialist commitments and socialist notions of property. I anticipate borrowing some direction and ideas from Ellerman once I've had time to digest this work.
