"(18 mins) Richard Barbrook - During summer 2016, he coordinated the writing of the Digital Democracy Manifesto for Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign for the leadership of the British Labour party which includes a firm commitment to support platform cooperatives. There it reads: “Platform Cooperatives We will foster the cooperative ownership of digital platforms for distributing labour and selling services. The National Investment Bank and regional banks will help to finance social enterprises whose websites and apps are designed to minimise the costs of connecting producers with consumers in the transport, accommodation, cultural, catering and other important sectors of the British economy.”
