    Great introduction to the social/psychological aspects of worker co-op/worker owner business, references were given for more information, and discussions of outcomes of forming a worker co-op/worker owned business.

    Next items would be an overview of getting seed money, screening potential worker/owners, creating organizational bylaws, option to be worker/non-owner, lobbying goals (public education, loan institutions, incorporation in a state, legislatures, town and county counsels/boards), possible non-voting shares for an IPO to raise money, and sources of success stories for worker co-ops/worker owned businesses. and policy development.

    A refreshing conversation that goes beyond politics and into some social/psychotically details.
