A business model for the 99%?
Can you build justice in the U.S. and empower yourself by running your own business?
That's one of the ideas to be explored by a unique panel on Saturday March 17 at this year's Left Forum at Pace University in downtown New York City.
The panel is, ““Trilogical Cooperative Enterprises: Challenges for Worker Owned Businesses”, taking place on Saturday March 17 from 12p.m. to 1:50 p.m. in room W 606 at Pace University, One Pace Plaza opposite New York City Hall.
Said one panelist, Ms. Susan Berkley - Founder/President of “The Great Voice” Company, “This panel is for enterprising people who have decided that rather than remain exploited and powerless, they choose to be empowered by starting their own full or part time businesses. Our intention is to help the 99% get back to work”
Ms. Berkley is a translator/teacher of the work of Brazilian psychoanalyst, Dr. Norberto Keppe, whose book, “Liberation of the People” is a landmark analysis of the psycho-pathology of power in modern society. He has pioneered in establishing Trilogical cooperative, worker owned businesses and residences in NYC, London, Paris, Stockholm, Helsinki, Lisbon and São Paulo, Brazil.
Another panelist, Occupy Wall Street activist and international musician, Mr. Gilbert Gambucci, will discuss how to do this, as he said, “by gaining a practical understanding of how the pathology of power works within society, on your job and within yourself”.
Panel chair Mr. Leonard Burg, coordinator of a Global Citizen project at Pace University, stressed that the Trilogical Cooperative Business model is applicable within conventional work environments or private enterprises and “is NOT Socialism and or Capitalism, but a means by which workers manage and control their own means of production.”
The theme of the Left Forum is “Occupy the System; Confronting Global Capitalism”.
Keynote speaker will be filmmaker Michael Moore.
