  •  An excellent piece Geminijen! (10+ / 0-)

    Ever since the earlier discussions on Mondragon initiated by Tpau, I have been wondering about how far they moved away from founding principles of cooperatives. I have been extremely skeptical about coops attempting to compete with capitalist MNCs and the dangers that it would hold. You have done an excellent job summarising the situation and the bankruptcy of Fagor ... I am interested in discussing whether you think it is in the interest of cooperatives to actually try and compete with MNCs or should they serve a different role?

    Thanks so much for such an excellent piece and all your hard work in clarifying the situation; it was worth the wait.
