Make a $50 donation to GEO and you get a copy of Building Co-operative Power: Stories and strategies from worker co-ops in the Connecticut River Valley:
GEO member Jim Johnson has led quite the interesting life of activism and #cooperative development (as well as being a worker-owner for 10 years). He's got some well considered opinions on where the movement should be focusing its energy right now. Take the time to listen to this and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
