The Co-op Power Hour: Co-op Study Circles

The Co-op Power Hour is a new monthly segment on It’s the Economy with co-hosts Nathan Schneider and Caroline Savery.

Since the beginning of the modern cooperative movement, mutual education has been a central organizing principle.

This first installment of the Co-op Power Hour explores why education matters for cooperative enterprise, how it has played a critical role in social-movement history, and what it involves.

Todays guests are Jessica Gordon Nembhard, professor of Community Justice and Social Economic Development in the Department of Africana Studies at John Jay College, of the City University of New York, and author of Collective Courage: A History of African American Cooperative Economic Thought and Practice; Christina Clamp, professor of social sciences at Southern New Hampshire University, director of the program on Co-operatives and Community Economic Development.
