Overview

Worker Capitalism makes the case for a pragmatic, government-assisted program of worker and worker-community ownership of businesses as a means of economic redevelopment, particularly in older industrial countries. Worker ownership, the authors contend, is a potentially superior alternative to industrial policies such as subsidies or protection. They seek to isolate the factors necessary for successful employee ownership and develop a general takeover strategy. Case studies of successful conversions to employee ownership - and one failure - from the United States, Canada, France, and the United Kingdom conclude the book.
