Mondragon and the future of worker co-ops

Gar Alperovitz gave an interesting interview on the Real News Network on Spain’s worker-owned Mondragon Corp. and the future of worker-owned co-op businesses in a capitalist economy.

He advocated a 30-year effort to build up worker co-ops to the point where they can become a dominant force in the economy.  I think his ideas are good, but I don’t think that either the United States or the rest of the world can afford to wait 30 years before changing direction.
