How do co-operatives do it? Once a means by which factory workers defended themselves against the abuses of early industrialization, the co-operative remains an instrument of choice today, eminently adaptable to both social economy and community economic development.

What sets the co-op apart is the capacity of the model to reshape itself to the twists and turns of multiple human needs, at the macro as well as the micro level. This article profiles four co-ops to demonstrate how people today are applying this tool to purposes too complex and in settings too demanding for the private or public sector alone.
