This posting is as much about archiving this link. I am personally skeptical about presentations which seem excessively naive about the prospects of cooperatives to be successful. The importance of establishing a culture of commoning cannot and must not be under-estimated. Education is an essential element of that culture, not an incidental accessory.
World Bank’s multi-stakeholder meeting to review and update its current environmental and social safeguard policies ended abruptly here on Monday.

The Magna Carta Manifesto
This interview is 29 minutes long. I highly recommend his book The Magna Carta Manfesto. I would love to promote bringing Peter Linebaugh here to give a talk.
Within the framework of a course in "Ethics and the Economy" which focuses on issues of equality and freedom within current economic institutions, by referring to the main theories of justice (esp. Rawls). Professor Linebaugh will connect the contents of his book "The Magna Carta Manifesto: Liberties and Commons for All" with how current capitalist institutions limit liberty. The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation wishes to thank Professor Yannick Vanderborght for the support to this initiative.
Typically this poem is dated from the 17th century and the time of the levellers and of the New Model army/navy. I would suggest instead that its dating is a product of its documentation in the 17th century, and as such is not a dating based upon its original context. As part of folklore it is a product of the folk of the commons culture which dates back to at least the 13th century. This is not to say that it wasn't popular during the 17th century which is the time period when commons customs were intensely criminalized in England.
