Περιγραφή:

For years, scholars and policy makers have argued that cooperatives, particularly agricultural cooperatives, exhibit organizational inefficiencies primarily caused by individual member behaviour that is often independent and non-cooperative conflicting with the formation of effective coalition building.  This free riding tendency creates significant challenges for a continued joint collaboration between and among member patrons.  Yet, agricultural cooperatives have a long history of surviving as successful business enterprises.  This paper presents a framework that proposes generic solutions effective as design principles in addressing the negative consequences of high organization costs, thus leading to sustainable common group interest activities.
