[Editor's note: alert reader Brigit McCone recently made us aware of an important cooperative advocate whose work on Native American solidarity economics has been largely overlooked, including in our own publication. Fortunately for us and our readers, Brigit has penned a brief introduction to the work of Laura Cornelius Kellogg. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.]

[Editor's note: this talk by Ed Whitfield of the Fund for Democratic Communities at the 38th Annual E.F. Schumacher Lecture series somehow managed to slip through out net when it was posted on Youtube last December. We present it now, as Ed's insightful commentary on our movement (and its failings) is as relevant now as it was last year. Ed's talk begins at about the 8 minute mark.]

Rebecca Kemble was first struck by worker cooperatives when she became a cab driver at Union Cab Cooperative and learned that she was one part of democratically owning and operating the cooperative. Since then, she’s advocated for worker cooperative models, which transfer ownership, decision-making and control into the hands of laborers. On today’s show, Kemble hosts the show and invites a bevy of guests with expertise on the subject to weigh in.
