I'm interested in a couple potential possibilities to support the expanding sector of the economy one might call, "people-powered". Are there investment opportunities that would provide a reasonable return on investment that would support Worker Owned Enterprises/Co-Ops? Thanks, Bill
The simplest answer is yes. Over and over again, worker coops have delivered profits as good or better than conventional capitalist enterprises. Of course, any enterprise entails risks - worker coops as well as capitalist enterprises - but there is no warrant for thinking that the latter are worthwhile investments while the former are not. Here in the US, what an investor needs is some reliable guidance in locating and collaborating with worker coops seeking outside investments.
