Nathan Schneider, author of Everything for Everyone: The Radical Tradition that Is Shaping the Next Economy  will speak on how the economic crisis Covid-19 has created makes having a visionary strategy essential – in lieu of giving the CWCF Conference keynote in the fall. In his words: “We need to activate cooperative ownership as a powerful, necessary tool for confronting the crisis we’re in, not just around the margins but in addressing central challenges facing the economy today.” CWCF’s proposal will be briefly presented as one possibility. There will be an opportunity for discussion and questions.
