PCC HK Guest Talk Series:
Better Business? Thinking about the Co-operative Advantage

Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Time: 7 - 8:30 pm

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.
