Economic Control for Regional Communities
11 March 2014
Dr Jeff McGee, an academic with the Newcastle Law School, writes on how regional communities can adapt to the exodus of large scale manufacturing industries.
Recent announcements by Holden and Toyota of manufacturing plant shutdowns in Geelong and Adelaide are stark reminders of how little control regional communities have over their economic and social futures in a globalised world.
In this opinion piece, Newcastle Law School academic Dr Jeff McGee argues that co-operatives offer a ready-made alternative for Australians who wish to spend, invest and retain jobs in their local communities.
