    that cooperatives are essential not only for transformation, but as what we are looking for in the future as a basis for the formation of a socialist economy. There are problems, but I think that they can be coherently worked on to develop a full transformative basis to a new future. The problems come from having to function in competition with capitalism; perhaps we can switch that so that we are not competing with them in their world but creating an alternative network and economic form.
