A Plan for Transition
Editor's note: Below is a chapter from Brian D'Agostino's book The Middle Class Fights Back (also available for Kindle). D'Agostino lays out one possible way forward towards a collective commonwealth society. While much of the background on Mondragon will be familiar to most cooperators, D'Agostino and Mathey offer suggestions for public policy initiatives that are refreshingly ambitious in their scope (see page 5, Transforming Capitalist Corporations). D'Agostino and Mathey ask us to consider the possibility of not just providing a marginal alternative to the existing economic order, but of totally re-making it in a more democratic and accountable (which is to say cooperative) mold.
