Can co-ops come out of the margins of the economy and be part of a larger political project to transform how things are owned?

  9. Brilliant video.
    I am hugely enthusiastic about cooperative and dividend-based provisioning systems. We need to get one step beyond conventional markets, based on scarcity and face up to land-reform linked to conservation and ecosystemics, that will GROUND our economy/ecology in transition principles of sustainable abundance and self-sufficiency.

    The US is “exporting” its bankrupt PR model that is essentially a product built out of market propaganda that nobody believes except the people who make it up! It does not really work. In fact it is doomed, or else we shall be.

    The best models are to be derived from nature, through biomimicry! We know it works, and you don’t have to keep winding things up with petro-chemical poisons or re-engineering their DNA into lethal mutations!

    Brain death is a serious problem on Capitol Hill and Wall Street. This is a crisis of imagination more than anything.

    My preferred slogan is “think different ~ think for yourself!!”

  10. Reblogged this on The Turning Spiral and commented:
    I’m inclined to think that trying to fix the current economy is a bit like the new wine into old wineskins adage. And with that, I am convinced that both co-ops and profit-sharing will be integral to the new economy that must emerge.
