This would have delighted Jo Grimond


MONDRAGON Corporation, Yearly Report 2010 (english) from MONDRAGON Corporation on Vimeo.
We have been banging on for sometime on this blog about the missing element in policy -namely employee ownership. Liberal from J S Mill to Keynes via Elliot Doods and on to Jo Grimond have argued the case. In 1979 Grimond published The Common Welfare in which he reported on a visit he had made to the Mondragon Co ops of the Basque lands with journalist Robert Oakshott. Out of that work the Job Ownership Ltd organisation was founded which is today known as the Employee Ownership Association. 

I was very impressed with the new Mondragon Annual Report published on vimeo recently charting the considerable expansion that the co ops have undergone. It was well worth a look

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
