由誕生之日起,以互聯網科技為基礎的網絡社會就與中國公民社會發展有諸多聯繫,更在近年的#metoo、塔吊工潮、烏坎村等事件中扮演了不可或缺的關鍵角色。然而,到底科技是促進、阻礙抑或消解公民社會之形成?學界仍無共識。

本次分享希望先將互聯網與公民社會的關係放進三個具體歷史階段——A. 隕石期(Asteroids 1996~2003)、B. 蜜蜂期(Bees 2004~2010)、C. 鬥獸場期(Coliseums 2010至今)——再在制度安排、階級關係、社會心態及全球互聯等方面進行具體分析比較。

「進一步、退兩步」是迄今為止的總趨勢,但突破鬥獸場期的侷限應只是時間問題。

PCC HK Guest Talk Series: [只限英語]

Better Business? Thinking about the Co-operative Advantage
Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 | Time: 7 - 8:30 pm | Language: English
Location: Rm 505A, 5/F, Wong Foo Yuen Bdg., Chung Chi College, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, N.T.
We are happy to introduce Prof. Morris Altman to be our next speaker, who will be sharing with us a brief discussion of the co-operative sector, with special attention to the co-operative and mutual sector in Australia and New Zealand.

Prof. Altman's research points out a realistic and alternative model of co-operatives and mutuals hold a potential and significant advantage over investor owned firms with regards to productivity and in the market place. This runs contrary to traditional economic theory that dominates the public policy and corporate leadership space.

Furthermore, co-ops can generate both a more equitable and productive economy than investor owned firms. Relatedly, co-ops, by better meeting member as opposed to shareholder needs, have a better chance of planning for the future (sustainability) as opposed to having a narrow focus on short term returns, which can negatively impact on the larger society.

Finally, co-operatives and mutuals provide the means for small and medium sized firms to compete effectively on the marketplace, empowering locally based economic entities and facilitating their success and survival over time.
