What if working together for the good of all was the most common business model? Watch, as several organizations strive towards building a more cooperative future. By rewarding human effort fairly instead of obsessing about the bottom line, these revolutionary businesses are creating a more people-friendly future, creating new ways to make money and doing it sustainably. A New Economy features seven interwoven stories. Among them are a small craft-brew coop, a peer-to- peer open hardware lab and an urban agricultural social enterprise. The Borealis String Quartet weaves beautiful music together with conversations on the core rewards of cooperation.
