Body paragraph

[Editor's Note: later this month, GEO and Level Translation will release an English edition of the most recent report on Argentina's recovered businesses (of which there were 311 in 2013, employing over 13,400 people).  The inspiring successes of the recovered business co-ops in Argentina--their failure rate so far has been less than 5%--no doubt has much to teach us, in the North, about how to successfully transition from capitalist to worker control.]

"Today's program looks at workers' cooperatives in Argentina, which emerged with the 2001 economic crisis, in which hundreds of companies went bankrupt, leaving their workers without jobs or income. In response, workers' cooperatives, based on cooperation, commitment, and solidarity, were established, with new labor relations and forms of democratic workplace organization."
