Many of the systemic problems with our economy arise from the diffuse ownership of large profit-maximizing corporations. Worker-owned cooperatives root the ownership of economic activity in place and can pursue social and beneficial practices that would be incompatible with a profit-maximization mandate. The program will feature a number of local cooperatives that are building the new economy by redesigning the way economic decisions are made:
Energy Solidarity Cooperative – Shiva Patel
WAGES – Sarah Lightfood
Coop Collaborative Incubator – Rani Croager
Three Stone Hearth – Jessica Prentice
Brief presentation by each of the presenter will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Ricardo Nunez of the Sustainable Economies Law Center and audience Q&A.
