SOCAP 365: Financing Broad-Based Ownership Models for Community Wealth
February 27, 2017 @ 7:00 PM—9:00 PM UTC+0$5 – $25
Broad-based ownership models bring substantial benefits to communities and workers, particularly those of low and moderate income, in the form of wage stability and wealth creation. In an economy where wages have been stagnant for decades – and a disturbing 40% of jobs are now part-time, temporary, or contingent –models fostering inclusive and collective ownership become even more important. Worker-owned companies, social enterprises, employee stock ownership plan (ESOPs), and related models are increasingly being seen as highly valuable tools for stemming and reversing rising economic inequality. How can we grow these models grow to create more and better jobs and wealth building opportunities in community? This panel conversation will address where and how to finance broad-based ownership models to build community wealth.
