Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some random reading that might underpin such an effort

Waring, Counting for Nothing

Daly and Cobb, For the Common Good

Parecon (unfortunately a real yawner of a book but attempts to lay out the nuts and bolts of a more equitable economic system)

Alperovitz, America Beyond Capitalism

Hawken, Natural Capital

Greider, The Soul of Capitalism

Bell, Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism

The Predatory Economy (can't remember author offhand)

See also:  True Cost Economics Manifesto

if anyone's read any of these and has trenchant critique or additional insights or whatever -- or knows of similar books written from a Euro or Asian perspective -- I'd be very interested to trade reading lists and opinions.

Thanks TG and DeAnander for these books and articles...we will need a good resource list to draw from (and people to read them, or preferably, people who have, and can report back).

There are some more materials on line for those interested in the Greider and Alperovitz books, which I recommend as well:
