Nathan Schneider presents Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition That Is Shaping the Next Economy
In conversation with Saduf Syal and Jen Horonjeff
Nathan Schneider's new book Everything For Everyone suggests 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 -- jointly owned, democratically controlled enterprises that advance the economic, social, and cultural interests of their members – often emerge during moments of economic crisis. Since the financial crash of 2008, the cooperative movement has been coming back with renewed vigor. Everything for Everyone chronicles this economic and social revolution – from taxi cooperatives that are keeping Uber and Lyft at bay, to an outspoken mayor transforming his city in the Deep South, to a fugitive building a fairer version of Bitcoin, to the rural electric co-op members who are propelling an aging system into the future. As these pioneers show, cooperative enterprise is poised to help us reclaim faith in our capacity for creative, powerful democracy. Schneider discusses his book and the cooperative movement in conversation with Saduf Syal, Coordinating Director of the New York City Network of Worker Cooperatives and Jen Horonjeff, CEO and Founder of Savvy Cooperative..
