At the 2010 ACE Institute in Cleveland toward the end of July, keynote speaker, David Korten, will provide a compelling argument for a better way of capital formation and distribution than Wall Street. It is a message that cuts through the clutter of economic jargon to where people live.
The agreement between MONDRAGON and the United Steelworkers is another landmark event that holds a great deal of promise for the application of cooperative principles to the labor movement.
Scholarships are available for those who would like to attend the institute but can't afford it. To find out about the scholarships please contact Sarah Pike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
