Sustainability and cooperatives

Given the goings-on over the past forty-eight hours in the UK with the Co-operative Group, this may not be the most ideal time to invite you to step back to think more broadly about the coop business model.  But never mind: let me mention that the latest in my series of articles on the theme ‘Can coops compete?’ has just been published by the Guardian (the link is here).  The theme this week is sustainability, and as you’ll see the piece offers a relatively upbeat message.

Next week’s article, the last of the series of six, will tackle the tricky issue of capital in coops, one on which there’s plenty to say. ( It’s time, in fact, to stop blogging and to start writing it.)
