There's been a recent upsurge of interest in democratic business models from thinktanks, policy platforms, and NGOs as they look for more direct and meaningful ways to redress imbalances in our economy. But there are also unhelpful confusions about these different models that can have a negative impact on policy decisions informing democratic business development at both the local and national level.
So what are the differences between co-operatives, community businesses, and employee ownership trusts and do they matter? Democratic business models have their own historical origins, offer different levels of democratic participation, are controlled by different regulatory bodies, can raise different forms of finance, and are appropriate for different aspects of local economic development.
By understanding these differences better we can be more effective in how we use these models for economic justice.
