Description: This course provides an introduction to the modern cooperative movement. (More than 800 million people around the world are members of co-operatives, including an estimated 1 in 4 Americans) Our goal is to acquaint students with the historical context and philosophical ideas that gave rise to co-operation; the evolution of the co-operative enterprise; comparative co-operative models and practice; the relevance of the co-operative alternative to modern economic and social issues such as globalization, climate change and the financial crisis; and case studies in co-operative business. Specific co-ops will be examined, with a focus on the ways they have worked to address community needs, create change, and support economic development.
