“There is renewed interest in models that are not winner-takes-all,” said Greg Brodsky, the founder of the program. “If, by design, we’re sharing ownership and profits on Day One, we think cooperative ownership should be the model of choice for people who care about wealth inequality.” Cooperatively owned businesses are more common than you might think. One study estimated there are about 29,000 in the United States, employing about 2.1 million people. Well-known co-ops include Massachusetts-based Equal Exchange and Ocean Spray, along with Cabot Creamery in Vermont. But many in the co-op world believe the model should be used more widely. “I think there would be less income inequality in the country if this became a significant portion of the economy,” said Rob Everts, co-executive director of the worker-controlled Equal Exchange, which is a financial backer of Start.coop.

New Mexico attracts more visitors every year, but the state wants to further boost tourism and related revenue by expanding on successful programs like New Mexico True and the Cooperative Marketing Program. New Mexico True is a brand that businesses, governments and nonprofit organizations can use by partnering with the New Mexico Tourism Department. That involves demonstrating how the organization expresses or evokes the state’s distinctive landscapes, cultures, food, art or history. The co-op program gives local nonprofits, municipalities and tribal governments a financial incentive to market what’s uniquely New Mexican about their event or location and even participate in existing advertising campaigns.
