Co-operative Enterprise

Open Post

At the local level, there has been a lot of good discussion on the Co-operative Group in the social media LinkedIn.com recently.  Questions like "Why Do We Not Study Co-operative Failures?" and "What Really Is a Failure When It Comes to a Co-operative?"


At the macro level we can witness what does and does not constitute co-operative behavior by watching the goings on within the Euro-zone and most recently involving the UK. We can expect even more news and fallout of sorts with the recent vote in the UK to leave the EU.  Certainly a classic case study for anyone interested in analyzing behavior both social and economic (i.e co-operation, competition and conflict) when state governments, financial institutions and citizenry fail to see things eye to eye. 


Please feel free to add comments on ANY topic you may wish within this Open Post.  We can also create a separate discussion thread for any subject you might request in your post.
