Abstract: 
More than 60 Worker/Owner businesses across New York City and hundreds across the United States; Are they Utopian Proletarian Experiments or the building blocks for a new Economy that can do better than Capitalism. This workshop, featuring Economist Richard Wolff, Worker/Owner Cooperative Leaders and Representatives from the Community that has grown to incubate and support them, will explore these critical questions for a growing movement towards real change in the United States.
