Employee Ownership: Building a Better American Economy

Download or order the booklet and find additional resources

In November 2017, the NCEO published the 24-page booklet Employee Ownership: Building a Better American Economy, which features compelling stories, research results, and easy-access explanations of employee ownership and its potential to make our economy better.

Written by veteran author and NCEO board member John Case, Employee Ownership: Building a Better American Economy speaks to employees, business owners, policymakers, and everyone else interested in learning what employee ownership looks like in real life.

The NCEO welcomes you to circulate the booklet to anyone you think might benefit from a powerful introduction to employee ownership. We have sent a free print copy to every NCEO member interested in ESOPs.
