Worker Cooperatives: Left Perspectives from Norm Diamond and Bill Resnick

program date: 
Mon, 07/14/2014


Bill Resnick and Norm Diamond discuss worker-cooperative businesses and their significance for the left. Do they prefigure the democratic production of socialism and empower participants?

Norm Diamond is an organizer and sometime Old Mole, as well as co-author of The Power in Our Hands. 19:44 minutes (9.04 MB)
