Platform Economy
As convener of this event, Trebor will first welcome you to Platform Cooperativism: Building the Cooperative Internet. Drawing on his book, Uberworked and Underpaid he will propose key aspects for platform cooperativism, a concept that he framed in an article in 2014 and then developed further in an introduction to the cooperative platform economy a year later. This publication, originally published by the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, was translated into five languages. Scholz will conclude with a few remarks about the Platform Cooperativism Consortium that will be launched at The New School in the context of this event.
