Summary
"This book presents the cooperative economy as a viable alternative to the neoliberal capitalist and authoritarian socialist models currently in use around the world. The authors contend that the cooperative model is based on principles essential to building a more just and equitable society. The democratic decision making process is indispensable for advancing towards a society that can better fulfil material and spiritual needs, helping to motivate workers and promoting solidarity. It is argued that the cooperative model would not only be of great use for the economic reform currently taking place in Cuba, but would radically transform other societies as well."--Provided by publisher
