How to stop poverty: start a worker-owned cooperative | Jim Brown | TEDxTuscaloosa

Friend For The Artists has a solution. Let’s form a Cooperative. A Virtual Cooperative!

“Why is chronic poverty tolerated in America? Is our economic system flawed? Through personal stories and insights, University of Alabama professor J. Palmer (Jim) Brown explores the problem of poverty and advocates a solution in worker ownership and cooperation. Jim Brown is a social entrepreneur and clinical professor at the University of Alabama. His research focuses on innovation and entrepreneurship. He studied at Cal Poly and MIT prior to a long career in industry. In addition to teaching, Mr. Brown has an extensive consulting background in business startups and operations improvement. His work with non-profit companies and people in poverty led him to co-found The Moses Project, an organization dedicated to the promotion of worker-owned cooperatives in Alabama. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at“-TedX Talks on YouTube

We have a new economical model being developed. Become a member, an engineer, an artist for the future. -Christopher Dean
