As a freelance author and business economist, I have been working for decades on ideas and practices of cooperative, solidary economic practices. I advise self-managed housing projects and collective enterprises in questions of organization and financing, whereby the basis is always social interaction, the culture of cooperation.
I also write, give lectures and contribute my knowledge and experience into local to global networking contexts.
With the economization of the world in which people count less and less I will never agree. This is why I am very critical of some forms of social business, if they serve more greenwashing or top-down philanthrocapitalism than emancipatory self-empowerment.
From the sustainability triangle of ecology-economy-social, I would like to delete the economy and replace it with democracy.
