The cooperative movement is surging

The blurb from this Democracy Now interview:

"This week marks the seventh anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement and 10 years since the collapse of U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers, which triggered the onset of the global financial crisis. The crisis also sparked massive global anti-capitalist movements, including Occupy Wall Street, the M-15 movement in Spain and the anti-austerity movements in Greece. 'It’s striking how little we are marking these anniversaries,' says author and activist Nathan Schneider. 'I think … we recognize we really haven’t done anything serious to deal with the causes of this crash.' Schneider’s new book outlines an alternative economic model based on cooperative ownership that saw a resurgence since the 2008 financial crisis. It’s titled Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition That Is Shaping the Next Economy."
