David P. Ellerman and Tej Gonza, co-founders of the Institute for Economic Democracy, presented the European ESOP model at this year’s Beyster Symposium.
For those of you who are interested in the idea of having the European version of the most successful employee ownership model around, listen to the conversation in the video below. For those that are after the details of the model, see the paper on our website (About us/Reading materials/European ESOP).
The purpose of the annual symposium is to study broad-based forms of capital ownership and capital income such as employee stock ownership, equity compensation, profit sharing, gain sharing, and worker cooperatives in the corporation. The workshop also explores approaches to broadened citizen capital ownership, “second income”, and dividend funds for citizens in the United States.
The worshop provides an opportunity for scholars to present research in progress, receive mentoring and feedback, work on join research projects and publications, and meet foundation officials and publishers in this scholarship. The worshop convenes members of the Fellowship Program of the Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing at Rutgers University’s School of Management and Labor relations.
