BBC documentary on mondragon from the 1970’s (part 1)
mondragon is spain’s 7th largest corporation, founded in 1955 in the historically oppressed basque region. today, it encompasses over 260 businesses and employs more than 100,000 people.
mondragon is exciting because its a huge federation of mutually supported worker-owned cooperatives. they have their own bank, technical university, industrial manufacturing, grocery store chains, advanced research etc.
