Questions & Answers

What is a solidarity economy?

A solidarity economy is a system in which everyone has their needs met, as a matter of basic human rights, in a way that does not exploit anyone or harm the environment. It is an economy that embodies the values of economic and social justice, diversity, cooperation, self-management, and ecological sustainability. For more, see Cooperation Humboldt's "What is a Solidarity Economy?" page.

Is this the same thing as socialism?

Some solidarity economies are explicitly anti-capitalist, while others work within a capitalist framework. Solidarity economies are not  inherently socialist or capitalist.

What is your refund policy?
