This e-book is based on Equal Exchange's cooperative development project with cocoa co-ops in the Dominican Republic, Ecuador and Peru to develop member equity plans in which members invest and... More > finance their co-ops. With 90% of chocolate originating from small farmer co-ops, it is essential to make them self-sustaining group enterprises in order to meet growing demand for chocolate, increased productivity and quality.

Written by international cooperative experts (each with over 35 years experience in co-op development), this e-book is intended to educate Fair Trade advocates, donors, development organizations and the Chocolate Industry on understanding and supporting the financial underpinning of cocoa co-ops which is member equity.

A Journey of Epiphanies: Learning Leadership answers these questions and more. There is a very specific path all great leaders take.

An unstoppable cataclysmic fiscal event is rapidly approaching which is going to... More > wipe out a large portion of the world's population. Make no mistake about it, those holding positions at the highest levels of government are well aware that a monster is coming our way-but there is a paradox.

Imagine a world without government – this thought exercise seems impossible for many, because the power and reach of state monopolies is so omnipresent in our lives. However, there is no... More > rational, economic or moral reason to assume that governments are necessary for the provision of roads, healthcare, charity, dispute resolution, courts, policing, national defense, jails – or any of the other services currently monopolized by the state.
Governments are extremely dangerous, responsible for over 250 million deaths in the 20th century alone – if it is possible to run a society without a government, surely this is something that we must strive towards as a species.
Practical Anarchy makes strong case for the private – that is to say voluntary – provision for public services. It reveals the idea of government as a dangerous and unnecessary anachronism, and points the way towards a peaceful and voluntary future for mankind.< Less
The word “anarchy” evokes images of dangerous mobs, spiky-haired youths hurling garbage cans through Starbucks windows, and the chaos of the war of all against all.
However, the word... More > “anarchy” simply means “without rulers” - and this state of affairs is something we desperately desire and defend in so many areas of our own lives. If a political ruler were to tell us who to marry, what to learn, and which job to take, we would rebel against such tyrannical intrusions on our freedoms. How can we reconcile this contradiction? Is being “without rulers” good, or bad? How can we fear something so terribly, while at the same time treasuring it so mightily?
“Everyday Anarchy” addresses this challenge head-on, arguing that being free of rulers is not something to fear - personally or politically - but rather a goal that we must constantly strive towards.< Less
