2. Richard Wolff - author of Democacy at Work, is onto this as well

I did my graduate work on this back in the 80's, democratizing the economy one
job, one plant at a time. Sadly, only modest growth in worker co-ops and ESOPS
has taken place since then; but maybe it's an idea who's time has more clearly
come, in light of the recent meltdown, the rampages of outsourcing jobs, etc.

This really is what the early labor movement was all about during the 1800s, but
then they put all the union eggs in the collective bargaining basket; which worked
well for awhile, but that hasn't gone so well for workers during the past 3-4 decades.

This guy Wolff is an awesome speaker, informative and even entertaining one
might say. His arguments are 100% air-tight as near as I can tell.
