Emilia Romagna, Italy where a third of GDP is Coop

In a current  july 2016 edition of the magaze Yes there is an interesting Article on the co-operative element of the regional economy of Emilia Romagna,   This region of Italy has the highest density of  cooperatives in the world.  As such this example illustrates the current limitatios and obstacles to constructing an enonomy based on democratic governace of an economy, both collective and distributive.

A final concluding blog will follow, summing up the attempt to picture and establish the criterion which are needed to establish a viable process of self forming democratic enterprises to a significant extent and scale. The original question was : Is there a Mutual Road to Economic Democracy? The article in the Yes magazine implies that there is some more work and experimentation to do before such a process can make significant further progress. There are problems to be solved.
