'God save co-operatives' (via Garry Lewis). Keep them from:
  • Academics who paw over the entrails of co-operatives then consign them to the footnotes;
  • Professionals who know all there is to know about co-operatives and nothing about co-operation;
  • Advisers who imagine co-operation dwells solely in statute;
  • Managers who think co-operation is like their ego – bigger is better;
  • Politicians who periodically woo co-operatives for electoral advantage before flicking them back into the ‘too hard’ basket;
  • Governments who cut co-operation to suit their ideological suits;
  • Pedlars of dogma who narrowly confine co-operation to economic enterprise; and
  • Investors who believe money is always more important than democracy.

About 888 Co-operative Causeway

What if we had a more democratic economy that better shared ownership and responsibility – a co-operative commonwealth with jobs of our own?

The Co-operative Way is an Australian-based and outward-looking podcast featuring news and analysis focussing on co-operative and mutual enterprise and the broader social and solidarity economy.

Be inspired by interviews with both seasoned and emerging co-operators. Hear about the latest developments in the co-operative movement in Australia and around the world.

Patrons get access to full episodes, and help us pay creators (for transparency basic costs for each episode including sound and design $300 AUD).

The Co-operative Way is a project of 888 Co-operative Causeway (a not-for-profit / non distributing co-operative). We are building a network of co-operators across Victoria by running events and providing a boutique co-operative co-working space in the heart of the Melbourne CBD in Victoria, Australia.
