Worker Cooperatives - Islands within a Sea of Capitalism

This episode of the Upstream podcast features our Director, Kali Akuno, discussing our ambitious initiative, modeled in many respects after Mondragon in the Basque Country, which is featured in the podcast, and notes our aim to eventually become the Mondragon of North America. It also situates Cooperation Jackson as part of the same trans-local organizing movement that inspired formations like Cooperation Richmond, Cooperation Buffalo, etc.

Upstream is a radio documentary series that invites you to unlearn everything you thought you knew about economics. Blurring the line between economic analysis and storytelling, we look beyond the numbers to explore a wide variety of themes pertaining to our tumultuous and thrilling 21st century economy.
