Researching the Social Economy
Jack Quarter, Laurie Mook, Sherida Ryan
University of Toronto Press, Jan 1, 2010 - Social Science - 335 pages
In this volume, contributors representing an inter-regional and international network of scholars and community organizations analyse how the social economy, in its many manifestations, interacts with and shares characteristics of organizations in the other sectors of the economy. The first study of its kind, Researching the Social Economy enriches our understanding of how this important cluster of organizations contributes to Canadian society in both economic and social terms, and lays the groundwork for future study.
