Will the real Common Ownership own up?

Local co-operator Tom Miller writes a regular eye on the ball blog (clearly he manages his time better than most of us) and he's kicked off a lively debate at LabourHome about about ownership and workplace democracy.

A topical subject in times when private capital gets jittery when the going gets tough, but when nationalisation is still in the shadow of bloated inefficiency. The old adage of "the profits are privatised, but the risks are socialised". But there are more choices than just the above as the millions of co-operative and social enterprise organisations do every year. You can read and put your 2 euros in.

Tom Miller is called NewerLabour.
