Jason Nardi:

"The Social Solidarity Economy is an alternative to capitalism, as well as other authoritarian, state- dominated economic systems, in which ordinary people play an active role in shaping all of the dimensions of human life: economic, social, cultural, political, and environmental. SSE is comprised of all sectors of the economy: production, finance, distribution and exchange, consumption and governance. SSE aims to transform the social and economic system that includes public, private and NGO spheres. Thus SSE is not only about the poor, but about the whole economy, and strives to overcome inequalities throughout all sectors of society. SSE has the ability to take the best practices that exist in the present system (such as efficiency, technology, and knowledge) and transform them to serve the welfare of the community, based on values and goals that differ from the capitalist economy."
