Derek Jones
An article about “Producer Co-Operatives,” by Professor of Economics Derek Jones, appears in The Blackwell-Wiley Encyclopedia of Sociology, 2nd ed., edited by George Ritzer and Chris Rojek.

The article explores several features of producer co-operatives (PCs), such as size, productivity, and worker satisfaction, and how PCs compare to capitalist firms in these and other areas.

The publisher calls this volume, which contains more than 2,000 articles, a “ground-breaking project that brings together specially commissioned entries written and edited by an international team of the world’s best scholars and teachers.” The online version is searchable and includes regular updates of new and revised entries and features.
