Post-Soviet Co-ops: Mongolian Herders Borrow a Tool From the Recent Past


Yes! Magazine has the article Post-Soviet Co-ops: Mongolian Herders Borrow a Tool From the Recent Past.

To make ends meet without selling their livestock one by one, some herders, including Terbish-Ragchaa and Galbadrakh, are beginning to borrow a tool from the past, forming cooperatives so that, together, they can manage the pastureland, sell directly to factories, and form other value-adding businesses. This time, it’s not mandated by the state—herders own the livestock and the cooperatives themselves.

Rethink how socialism can work.I suppose some people might even think of this as capitalism. No matter what you call it, the difference seems to be who owns the means of production.
