PROUT Policy on Cooperative Enterprise
Cooperatives are the preferred form of enterprise in the PROUT economy because they provide the most empowering arrangement for human beings to work together. Only those economic activities that cannot be done collectively should be done individually, or under state control.
This policy statement offers a PROUT perspective on developing cooperative enterprises. It examines their principles, advantages, internal organizational structures, supportive infrastructure, and wider environmental factors necessary for their development.
