Dear Richard Wolff, I just stumbled upon an article by Deutschlandradio. This article is about the first german hospital that is organized as a worker coop. It was voted for being the "most popular hospital of eastern germany" and the head of the hospital speaks of the workers as "her bosses". Even though workers are paid a little less than average wages, they are more satisfied than others because they have a feeling of meaning and participation. Unfortunately the article is in german only, I did not find an english source. If you like, I can translate the article for you. Thank you for your work, I am a long-time follower of your economic updates. Greetings from Munich, Germany Benjamin Helgert http://www.deutschlandradiokultur.de/modell-fuer-die-zukunft-beschaeftigte-uebernehmen-ein.1001.de.html?dram:article_id=377833
To Benjamin Helgert: I would be very grateful if you could send us a translation as you suggest. Not only would that help to educate me, but I would then prepare a segment for my weekly radio and TV program, 'Economic Update," that now is broadcast on 75 radio stations and TV stations in New York and san Francisco areas reaching 1.5 million people weekly. Let me thank you in advance.
