The Washington, DC launch of Nathan Schneider’s forthcoming book on the cooperative economy will coincide with the 2018 Co-op IMPACT Conference.
Stop by Kramerbooks & Afterwords Café at 1517 Connecticut Ave. NW on Thursday, October 4 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. to hear from Schneider and get a signed copy of Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition that Is Shaping the Next Economy (Nation Books).
Schneider’s new book—based on years of in-depth reporting—argues that the origins of the next radical economy are rooted in a tradition that has empowered people for centuries and is now making a comeback: cooperatives.
As jointly owned, democratically controlled enterprises, cooperatives advance the economic, social and cultural interests of their members. They often emerge during moments of crisis not unlike our own, putting people in charge of the workplaces, credit unions, grocery stores, healthcare and utilities they depend on.
To join the broader conversation around a cooperative economy that empowers everyone, register for IMPACT 2018.
Schneider is a journalist and assistant professor of media studies at the University of Colorado-Boulder. In 2015, he co-organized “Platform Cooperativism,” a pioneering conference on platform co-ops, and co-edited the subsequent book, Ours to Hack and to Own: The Rise of Platform Cooperativism, a New Vision for the Future of Work and a Fairer Internet.
