A cooperative economy: a sustainable solution for an unstable system

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and my time in lockdown isolation in northern Italy, I reflected on the frameworks that I have been teaching MBA and executive students for many years. It became clear to me that our economic system was no longer adequate as it is plagued by growing inequality, the dominance of a select few major platforms, ineffective economic policy, and the depletion of natural resources.

The impacts of the pandemic, along with social unrest and the exploitation of our planet, highlighted the flaws in our current economic framework. This realization led me to question how business school professors like myself could address these issues. As I pondered the broken economic system and its consequences for society and the environment, I considered the need for a shift in thinking and action. It was clear that changes were necessary to ensure a more equitable and sustainable future for all.
