cooperative enterprise

PROUT’s Cooperative System

Cooperatives are a highly efficient form of enterprise. Where cooperatives have adequate access to capital, entrepreneurship, skilled labor, and competent management, they out-perform capitalist-managed and state-managed enterprises in virtually every respect.  Cooperatives are a superior form of enterprise in their capacity to stimulate worker productivity.

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.
