Behavioural economists are showing that, if business owners try to motivate their workers with financial incentives, productivity often
declines. *Daniel Pink on Motivation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrkrvAUbU9Y)

If, however, employees are offered workplace autonomy, a chance to become really good at something, and an opportunity to make the world a better place, those incentives really do raise productivity.  Ideas like this fit with co-op purpose, values and principles.  Imagine  2012 will be a gathering of good economic ideas.

Use Tools That Work

To Build a Better World we must build a better economy. The Imagine 2012: Conference on Co-operative Economics will provide co-operative leaders with ideas and tools to build a better world based on a better economy.

At Imagine2012, internationally renowned proponents of a ‘new economy’ will explore the relationships of their specialties to a cohesive body of “cooperative economics” which could be utilized internationally.

 Meet ten of the Fifteen world class economic thinkers who will join you at Imagine 2012. <http://www.imagine2012.coop/presenters/>

Imagine 2012 and the Summit are the product of collaboration by MMCCU, the International Co-operative Alliance (www.ica.coop) and the Desjardins Group, Canada’s largest co-operative financial services provider, and a leader in co-op development. The venue, Quebec City, is a world-class center of culture, history and entertainment and glows with Autumn foliage in October.

“The world never needed co-operation more than it does now.”

I hope to see you there!
