Ask Prof Wolff: Democracy in Workplaces and Communities

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "In a worker co-op oriented society, how would conflicts between the people who own and operate the co-ops and the wider whole of society be resolved? Say the workers at a plant have two means of producing a product: one that the workers feel is better for them at the cost of the community, and another which is better for the community but makes things more difficult for the workers. How would such a thing be arbitrated?"

This is Professor Richard Wolff's video response.
