This book aims at understanding how and why the co-operative firm is a valid instrument for common goods implementation and management. Nineteen authors, among academics and co-operators, contributed to achieve this goal.
The book has three sections: “identity, values and objectives”, “good practices and new co-operative horizons” and “co-operative startups”. As in the case of the book ‘The Co-operator’ written by Doctor King who created a practical and theoretical guidebook for future co-operators, this work aims at recreating a dialogue between academics and co-operators.
A dialogue based on the commons!
