Economic Update: Worker Co-Ops, Socialism’s Future


YouTube has the video Economic Update: Worker Co-Ops, Socialism’s Future.

If you learned about socialism in the 20th century, or heard the propaganda about it that continues, then perhaps it will be a good idea to learn what it means now. Socialism is changing in ways that most people in the USA don’t know.

I was wondering if Bernie Sanders is even aware of these changes. Then I thought about his experiences in his youth with a kibbutz in Israel. I’m no expert on the way a kibbutz works, but I suspect there is a lot of similarity to what Richard Wolff describes in this talk (only as far as how production was organized).

Here is a little snippet from a Wikipedia article on Bernie Sanders.

In 1963 Sanders and Deborah Shiling Messing, whom he met in college, volunteered for several months on the Israeli kibbutz Sha’ar HaAmakim.
