Letter to the Editor: What can South Africa learn from Mondragon? The answer lies in community ownership

South Africa is in a better position than Mondragon (in the Basque region of Spain) was in 1954. The community in Mondragon had no support from government, they were not allowed to use their own language in schools, there were no jobs, no technical colleges, young people had to pack suitcases to look for jobs in Madrid, yet today Mondragon is a developed and sustainable community able to grow its own economy and provide for itself, writes Ruth Bengu.
