This week, Vernon interviews Michael Alden Peck, who will introduce “Humanity @ Work & Life: Global Diffusion of the Mondragon Cooperative Ecosystem Experience,” a book he co-edited with Christina Clamp. This book is a full compendium of how solidarity, innovation and conviction have forged sustainable local and global social economic practices that benefit the greater common good.
