It was good to hear Nick Clegg, the Deputy PM, giving his economics lecture to London on TV and extolling the virtues of enterprises like the John Lewis Partnership, where all workers are co-owners and partners in the business , and have a vested interest to perform well and promote the business so it thrives.
Another example I would suggest is the Goldman Sachs Partnership.
Another example is the People's Supermarket.
It is the principle of a co-operative business, where all work to make the enterprise shine.
Some can even be social enterprises, like nursing homes and so on, where people can be willing to look after people because it is a spiritually rewarding activity.
Such ideas when explored and developed with people from all walks of life may evolve into sound long-term enterprises, and may even open up the Big Society.
They are onto a good thing.
