We recently received a new report out of Canada on the state of cooperation in the UK, Canada, and the US. You can download the report at: Sharing-Like-We-Mean-It-Web. 

“We try to present a realistic picture of co-ops, including their promises
and challenges, their strengths and tensions. Co-ops are not a magic
solution to systemic work problems. Still, we believe that the co-op
model, in conjunction with other pro-worker policies and organizations,
holds potential to democratically remake work in ways that have yet to
be fully realized or widely tested in creative industries. As our research
participants told us, growing the co-operative economy requires, above
all, increased public awareness of the co-op model. We hope this report
helps to build that awareness. “
