Summary :

The next system that we need, and that hopefully we are moving toward, is a cooperative commonwealth within interlocking local solidarity economies. Such a system is created from the bottom up, building upon multiple grassroots cooperative enterprises, and democratic

community-based economic practices. These networks collaborate and federate from the local to municipal, regional, national, and international levels.
