The Limits of Co-ops /w Dr. Sharryn Kasmir

In a time where the Left is desperately searching for a viable alternative model to global capitalism, rather than merely critiques of it, co-ops have emerged as an easy reference to a potential future system. As the co-op model has staked a place in the popular leftists imagination, it is necessary to consider it’s short-comings, and the limits it imposes on socialist movements.

To discuss these issues we are joined by Dr. Sharryn Kasmir of Hofstra University.

Sharryn M. Kasmir is Professor of Anthropology at Hofstra University.
