'Beyond Business as Usual' Report from Cooperation Texas

We are pleased to announce the release of Beyond Business as Usual: Putting Cooperation to Work in Austin, TX. This groundbreaking report explores the history, current impact, and potential of the cooperative economy in Austin. Based on over a year of research, the report examines the nature and benefits of the cooperative model and identifies barriers and opportunities for worker co-op development. 

Beyond Business as Usual also looks closely at the growing economic divide in Austin and how worker cooperatives can play a role in addressing these conditions as part of a more equitable approach to community economic development. The report can be downloaded for free from the Resources/Publications page.  We encourage you to share the report with your friends, colleagues, and community, and invite you to get involved in upcoming opportunities to take action on the report’s recommendations.
