Video: Open Co-ops and the Commons

Michel Bauwens at the Open Everything Convergence

[Editor's note: In this video, Michel Bauwens of the P2P Foundation, discusses the intersection of cooperatives and the commons; problems with traditional co-op models; and ways to structure cooperative enterprises to more effectively create an alternative economy around collective wealth creation instead of private wealth extraction.  More videos from Open Everything: A Collaborative Economy Convergence, held in Ireland this September, can be found here and here.]
