Plan C for the British economy is about a radical dose of democracy for the economy, spreading ownership and giving the people involved in a business the right to benefit from its success.
We are running an online panel with the Guardian on Thursday January 12th on the question of ‘can co-operation rebuild British business?’
You can sign up to join in on the Guardian site – and take part in the UK national launch for the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives.
Happy new, co-operative year. I am not going get tired of that idea for some time to come!
I am looking forward to contributing once more to a course this year at Schumacher College. The course is a pioneering attempt to bring together an MSC on economics as if people mattered, in Fritz Schumacher’s phrase (it was the subtitle to his book, Small is Beautiful, though the title itself was coined by his publisher).
The course details are now out.
