Out of the ashes

Frances Moore LappĂ© [thanks to Derrick for telling me how to do accents in html] has an article on AlterNet [1] on worker-collective businesses that have been established by survivors of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Of course, it shouldn’t take a catastrophe to prepare the ground for success stories like those she profiles (and as John Abrams shows [2], it often doesn’t), but regardless, kudos to the people out there daring to have the hope and gumption to do well by doing good. The fact that they had to forge their success in the face of red tape from both the financial markets and government only goes to show the value to people of having a real say in the work of their lives.
