CT-_Cooperatives-_The_key_to_climate_action-.png

To solve the greatest challenges of our time, climate change and inequality, we need an economic system that serves us better. However, beyond identifying and agreeing upon the problem we often stop short at imagining solutions.

The re-imagination of the economy is already in motion. Now it's time for the climate movement to get on board with organizing for a democratically managed and collectively owned economy.

During the recent presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised to revitalize American manufacturing—and bring back “good” manufacturing jobs. So did Hillary Clinton.

As long as workers have no say in how production is organized—including the technologies that are used and the surplus that is created—we can expect both manufacturing production and profits to increase while leaving workers and their jobs behind.

How do we build an alternative while people are suffering now? Though single payer healthcare is touted as the obvious fix, the world can’t wait until it’s politically feasible, much less as the incoming Trump administration ramps up its assault on state-funded care.
