Part of the Policy Studies Organization Series book series (PSOS)


During the late seventies and early eighties there were efforts in both Australia and Great Britain to create a third sector of enterprise based on workers co-operatives and community businesses. In Great Britain these efforts met with comparative success. In 1977 there were less than one hundred such enterprises. Today, that number has risen to an estimated 1750. In addition there are some one hundred community enterprises, an infrastructure of approximately sixty local co-operative development agencies and several national bodies, the most important being the Industrial Common Ownership Movement (ICOM).
