Solidarity Economy and the Rebirth of a Matristic Human Society
A document taken from the panel: «Towards People’s Economy: Realities and Strategies from Local to Global» at the 2004 World Social Forum in Mumbai, India.
The author addresses four questions: What factors are contributing to the birth and the growth of a Solidarity Economy? What are the visions and goals implied in the idea and the practice of a Solidarity Economy? What possible strategy can we devise for the development of a global Solidarity Economy? What challenges are we confronting as we build a Solidarity Economy in Latin America?
