The Practical Utopians
- American Workers and the Cooperative Movement in the Gilded Age
- By: Steve Leikin
- Narrated by: Timothy W. Bader
- Length: 6 hrs and 28 mins
Between 1865 and 1890, in the aftermath of the Civil War, virtually every important American labor reform organization advocated "cooperation" over "competitive" capitalism and several thousand cooperatives opened for business during this era. The men and women who built cooperatives were practical reformers and they established businesses to stabilize their work lives, families, and communities. Yet they were also utopians - envisioning a world free from conflict where workers would receive the full value of their labor.
A rarely discussed part of American history.
