Co-ops – Business Model

What is a co-p?

Co-operatives are enterprises that put people at the centre of their business and not capital. Co-operatives are business enterprises and thus can be defined in terms of three basic interests: ownership, control, and beneficiary. Only in the co-operative enterprise are all three interests vested directly in the hands of the user.

For-profit companies are designed to produce a profit for the owners, but since the owners of a co-op are also the customers, lowered prices and extra services are acceptable instead of profits.

The old forms of money aren't working anymore. The U.S. dollar is collapsing as the world currency. Central banks are making most of us beast of burden. The Trans-Pacific-Partnership will further erode our personal health, freedom and sovereignty.
