Free MOOC: Economic Democracy - The Cooperative Alternative

Join us for a new MOOC: Economic Democracy - The Cooperative Alternative

We often hear that political democracy is the best available form of government, but democracy rarely operates within the firm. Many of us elect our politicians, but very few can elect our Boss. Especially since the Great Crash of 2008 people (possibly including you) around the world are seeking a viable alternative to hierarchical, corporate capitalism. Could a cooperative, market economy, in which firms are owned and controlled by their workers, be such an alternative? That’s the central issue we address in the MOOC. 

Massive online courses, or MOOCs, are free courses offered by universities and other post-secondary institutions, and open to anyone. All you need is access to the Internet and time to complete them! No previous MOOC experience required.
