CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 24 January 1914

CO-OPERATION AMONG FARMERS. I There is every reason why co-opera tion should bo fostered by farmers, who have much to gain by the movement. To do away with trusts, it is necessary ! to substitute something else in their place; and tho only solution of the i whole problem is thtf complete system | of co-operation in which tho profit re 1 verts to those who create them. For l example, in a complete co-operation of j tho fanners it would not matter | whether they received the full market value for wheat or not; bccauso if i there were a prolit made out of them ! of, say, £100,000, that profit would be divided among those people out of whom the profit has been made. The same could be said regarding manufac turers—tho corporation could not only be among tho purchasers, but among tho men who aro working the factory, and tho profit could bo divided first nmong the purchasers on the amount thoy had purchased; and,_ secondly, among tho persons whoso labor contri buted towards the manufacture...
