Jeremy Rifkin on how to transform unions and coops for the digital age

Unions and cooperatives should start focusing on millenials and adapt to distributed governance, and if they do, they will win from the new monopolies, argues Rifkin in this interview for the European Trade Union Congress (ETUC/ ETUI).

Rifkin is sometimes accused on not problematizing the transition to the zero-marginal cost society, but in this interview, he stresses the importance of struggle and self-organization for the control of production and the distribution of its fruit.
