This book is simply a masterpiece on cooperativism for the xxi century. Forward and outward looking, from exceptionally well informed cooperatives analysts. It outstandingly demonstrates why cooperatives are more resilient to the crisis and avoid falling into the dept trap and its implacable cohort of inhuman effects.
A decisive contribution not only to economic democracy but also to Democracy as a political system by which men and women preserve and control our common good and common wealth, on the basis of one person-one vote, independently of their wealth or capital.
A rational and passionate book of hope for our common future.
