E.G. Nadeau has just released a new book on how cooperation is part of the solution for a recession-proof economy, filling the gaps in income equality, and protecting the environment. InThe Cooperative Solution, Nadeau explains the consequences of our current economic system, and the role U.S. cooperatives can play toward the goal of growing economic democracy. The book explains the different types of cooperatives active today, and gives examples of how credit unions, agricultural co-ops, insurance mutual and food co-ops have impacted people and communities nationwide.
The Cooperative Solution is a short, accessible book, perfect for boards or co-op study groups looking for a framework for a future economy that is responsive to the needs of local communities.
