I like it. Employee ownership relies upon and rewards everyone working together to define company objectives and deliver outstandingly beneficial and competitive products and/or services. It is the kind of capitalism that built this country, not the crony-capitalism often practiced today. Success depended upon delivering useful and affordable products or services and not upon ‘stacking the deck’ by purchasing political favor. Everyone pulling together is always more effective than relying on a few strongmen with connections who are directing traffic. Also, it lets employees see and participate in the struggles needed to get and keep a company in business and the ‘hard decisions’ often needed along the way- something that employees generally neither see nor appreciate.
