Capitalism is failing and ordinary people are forced to pay the price. With such deep-rooted problems there is real hunger for alternative ways of organizing our economic system. Answering the question, "Is there a co-operative alternative to capitalism?" this book showcases fourteen responses from economists, academics, co-operators, politicians, and campaigners, exploring both the success and untapped potential of co-operatives. Each essay approaches from a new direction—from the flourishing open source movement to cases of co-operative success in different parts of the world.

Rob Harrison has written and commented widely on social change issues for more than twenty years.

Book Description New Internationalist Publications Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Scientists are pointing to increasingly dangerous levels of climate change and habitat destruction, Europe and America are facing their worst economic problems for a generation, and social movements around the world are calling for sweeping reforms. Do co-operatives offer an alternative model of social organisation which could address some of these key issues? Or do they simply offer another way of organising businesses within a predominantly capitalist economy? What would the world look like if co-operatives grew to gradually replace private businesses across every economic sector? Would it be much the same? Would it be somehow transformative or utopian? This book brings together fourteen different perspectives on one of the most promising alternative economic models available today. Economists, academics, co-operators, politicians, campaigners and ordinary people combine to bring a rich array of experiences and insights to kick off a new global debate on how much better a co-operative future might be.
