Policy Workshop - Innovations in Urban Economics Development (Cleveland's Coop Model)

Hugh B. Price

DEPARTMENT CONSENT IS REQUIRED TO ADD THIS CLASS

Many US cities are in economic decline as jobs evaporate, poverty deepens and populations shrink. In response, several cities and organizations are partnering with anchor institutions, universities/hospitals that are deeply rooted and committed to community development. These institutions are spurring job creation by investing in and utilizing worker-owned cooperative businesses, such as the Evergreen Cooperatives in Cleveland. This workshop examines the feasibility and potential of worker cooperatives to help rejuvenate inner-city economies and will produce a report for a government agency/leading organization engaged in these issues.
