Consumers' cooperatives may, in turn, form cooperative federations. These may come in the form of cooperative wholesale societies, through which consumers' cooperatives collectively purchase goods at wholesale prices and, in some cases, own factories. Alternatively, they may be members of cooperative unions.[4] Consumer cooperation has been a focus of study in the field of cooperative economics. Governance and Operation[edit] Large consumers' co-ops are run much like any other business and require workers, managers, clerks, products, and customers to keep the doors open and the business running. Finance and approach to capital accumulation[edit] Problems[edit] Pursuit of social goals through consumer co-operatives[edit] Examples[edit] Australia[edit] Europe[edit] Japan[edit]

Open Culture The World According to Monsanto There's nothing they are leaving untouched: the mustard, the okra, the bringe oil, the rice, the cauliflower. Once they have established the norm: that seed can be owned as their property, royalties can be collected. We will depend on them for every seed we grow of every crop we grow. This is the best way to control the populations of the world. Thanks to these intimate links between Monsanto and government agencies, the US adopted GE foods and crops without proper testing, without consumer labeling and in spite of serious questions hanging over their safety. Monsanto’s long arm stretched so far that, in the early nineties, the US Food and Drugs Agency even ignored warnings of their own scientists, who were cautioning that GE crops could cause negative health effects.

What is behind the mask of revolution? Global separatism in the Russian context At first glance, there would seem to be little in common between the Arab Spring, the Occupy Movement, the Russian movement ‘For Fair Elections’, the resurgence of the Left on the streets of Germany and during elections in France, the revival of separatism in Scotland, Catalonia and some U.S. states, and other recent protests in various parts of the world. Nevertheless, it feels like we are at the beginning of something. But what? To answer both of these questions we have to begin understand the common reason for this synchronised, global reawakening of the spirit of revolution. 1 Fathers, sons and the 21-23 year cycle of history While each revolution that separates one period from another is unique, all revolutions have something in common. The doorkeepers say: ‘Let us go and plunder.’ The key element in this apocalyptic list is not conflict between the rich and the poor, nor the inundation of an ancient culture by barbarians. A man regards his son as an enemy. 2. 3. 4. 5. Why not? 6.
