Conceptual Framework on Measurement of Cooperatives and its Operationalization
This report presents a general overview of how cooperatives and key concepts are measured for statistical purposes. It is based on extant work and literature. The first part of the report reviews the most important statistical studies on cooperatives. Conceptual and methodological issues are identified concerning the identification and classification of cooperatives, including a discussion about core components and boundary areas. The report then proposes a conceptual framework for defining and classifying cooperatives for measurement purposes. This framework suggests a set of four structural-operational qualification criteria to identify cooperatives.
Self-defined rules, common resources, motivations, and incentives in cooperative firms
Cooperatives are characterized by mutual-benefit coordination mechanisms aimed at the fulfilment of members’ participation rights. This paper explores the institutional elements that regulate individual behavior and outcomes in cooperatives by bringing together new institutionalism, behavioral and evolutionary economics. Our framework considers four main dimensions of the governance of cooperative firms: (1) the development and application of self-defined rules by the members of the cooperative; (2) the management, and appropriation of common resources and outcomes; (3) intrinsic motivations and reciprocating behaviors; (4) the implementation of suitable incentive mixes based on inclusion and reciprocity, including both pecuniary and non-pecuniary elements. An example is offered in order to highlight possible problems in the governance of cooperative firms, in particular the processes of distribution and appropriation of surplus. The example aims at introducing the discussion of the new framework of analysis
HOME BASE The Playbook for Cooperative Development
IF LIFE WERE A BASEBALL GAME, homeownership would be like sliding into home base. Just as players reach for the plate with their outstretched fingers, aspiring homeowners reach for their “home base”— a place to call their own; a place that gives them a stake in their community; a place that keeps them safe. Unfortunately, home base can be out of reach for many. Skyrocketing real estate prices, building management practices, and other external factors have made owning an apartment, condominium or single-family home difficult at best, and oftentimes impossible.
