4thWorldRadyo: Occupy The Local Food Co-Op (11.16.2014)

Summary: TheAngryindian speaks again with US Social Justice activist Matthew @MatheMattic about his involvement in the co-operative food industry and his perspectives about the possibility of positive institutional change through member-owner coop democracies, farmer-customer relations and the value of open-source technology as a business model. The guest insists that if the general public were educated on the basics of co-operative concepts, that people would then take it upon themselves to initiate the progressive changes they wish to see. He raises the labour wage issue and how North American coop cultures can work towards promoting a functional alternative to the extant US vulture capitalist model of private ownership and monopoly over public utilities and other necessities.
