This edition of Making Sense, the Workers’ Party publication joins others in the Archive. Most notable is a piece by Ellen Hazelkorn and Paul Sweeney which examines the ‘issues raised by Proinsias de Rossa in his Presidential address to this year’s WP conference’. It engages with a ‘significant revision of the WP’s concept of socialism and the market contained in the speech. In it we are told that ‘we define Socialism by letting the people tell us what they want from Socialism’, people ‘all over Europe, want socialism to be democratic’ rather than economic or coercive. The authors are mildly but pointedly critical of much of this in the three pages of the piece.

Other articles include Rosheen Callender examining Basic Income, the Left in Europe, Cuba and book reviews.
