Narrator Matt Amendt puts his Shakespearean acting roots to good use in this sweeping broadside on the value of business cooperatives. His phrasing, including his deft use of pauses and vocal intensity, draws attention to the ideas that matter and adds a melodic gravitas to the audio that makes listening a joy. Author Nathan Schneider shows how cooperatives like mutual insurance companies, farmers markets, and utility cooperatives meet consumer needs that investor-owned companies too often shun for economic reasons or exploit for profit. With his meticulous research and satisfying grasp of history, Schneider shows how democratic cooperatives, in particular, can meet the social, economic, and cultural needs of consumers by giving them more control, thus narrowing the psychological divide between the haves and have-nots.
