Dr. William King (17861865) Although Owen inspired thecooperative movement, others such as Dr William King took hisideas and made them moreworkable and practical.King believed in starting small, andrealized that the working classeswould need to set upcooperatives for themselves, sohe saw his role as one ofinstruction. 6. Charles FourierCharles Fourier should alsobe mentioned as animportant influence.Beliefs-Fourier believed that poverty was thereason for disorder socially and economically.The main goal of Fourier was to create asociety in which the people worked together,both rich and poor, to create a socialeconomy that was profitable and also savedtime and labor for the citizens. By uniting allpeople regardless of economic status,Fourier hoped to eliminate the poverty thatwas stunting the success of social economy..Just like pleasure needs variety, so did work.Fourier believes that the people shouldconstantly switch roles and have variety intheir work which produces the best result. 7. Beatrice Webb was the author of TheCo-operative Movementin Great Britain (1891). 8. The Rochdale PioneersIn modern form, cooperatives date from 1844, then a group of 28 impoverished weavers of Rochdale, England, founded a mutual-aid society, called the Rochdale Society of Equitable Pioneers. 9.

Rochdale Principles in 1844, which havebeen highly influential throughout thecooperative movement.(1) democratic control, with each member entitled toonly one vote, regardless of the number of his orher total shares;(2) membership open to all, irrespective of race, creed,class, occupation, or political affiliation;(3) payment of limited interest on invested capital;(4) distribution of net profits, usually called savings orearnings, to cooperative members in proportion tothe amount of their patronage. 11. Supplemental PrinciplesThe Rochdale Society developed a number ofsupplemental principles, which are generally observedin contemporary consumer cooperatives. According tothese: a. part of cooperative earnings are utilized toexpand operations b. non-members may become members byletting their share of net profits be appliedtowards their initial share stock; 12. Supplemental Principlesc. goods and services are sold for cash at prevailing market prices; reserve funds are regularly accumulated for the purpose of covering depreciation and meeting possible emergencies;d. educational activities, designed to increase and inform the cooperative membership, are systematically sponsored and conducted.e. Other supplemental principles hold that labor must be fairly treated and that cooperatives should work together 13.

Fisheries ICFO reportThe fisheries sector, which includes aquaculture, is crucial tofood security, poverty alleviation and general well-being. In2008, the world consumed 115 million tonnes of fish, anddemand is expected to rise. Fish and fishery products are a vitaland affordable source of food and high-quality protein(ICA:2010). 38. Fisheries ICFO reportIn 2008, fish as food reached an all-time high of nearly 17 kg perperson, supplying more than threebillion people with at least 15percent of their average animalprotein intake. In recent years,fishermen have suffered fromvarious difficulties, such as lack ofeducation, dangerous fishingenvironments and diminishingcatch sizes caused by overfishingand climate change (ICA:2010). 39. 8. Housing The recent global financial crisis had a powerful impact on housing markets around the world. Construction, which depends on capital investment, suffered as the capital markets dried up, property values fell and governments cut back on the financial assistance they provided for affordable housing. While many co-operative housing developers/providers reduced their development programs from lack of capital finance or to reduce exposure to adverse market conditions, established housing co-operatives proved to be resilient to the crisis, according to Mr David Rodgers, President of ICA Housing. 40.
