Student Poster Presentations
The New Year's activities began with poster presentations by students in Brett Fairbairn's class Co-operatives in the New Economy: Institutions, Governance, and Policy. Five students identified and analysed a variety of co-op policy issues and presented their posters at a well-attended wine and cheese reception in the Diefenbaker Building's River Room on 13 January 2016.
Paul Thompson discusses his poster titled Co-operate or Compete?
The event, titled Analysing Co-op Policy Cases, addressed questions such as:
- Can communal enterprises survive in a capitalist economy?
- Can Co-op Life Cycle Theory explain organizational failure?
- Are credit unions more stable than banks in financial crises?
- Have policy changes undermined MEC’s co-op identity?
