13-11 Cooperative Governance and Oregon Tax Reform Proposal

Guest Alex Linsker, an organizer with Tax & Conversation, asks “What happens when companies are democratically run?” Tax & Conversation is a cooperatively run Tax Reform effort which is striving to write an Oregon ballot initiative to reform Oregon’s tax structure.
