You may have seen this op-ed column in The New York Times:
By JOSEPH R. BLASI, RICHARD B. FREEMAN and DOUGLAS L. KRUSE
The authors of the column are well-known employee ownership researchers, Dr. Joseph Blasi and Dr. Douglas Kruse at the School of Management and Labor Relations at Rutgers University and Dr. Richard Freeman at Harvard University.
The column makes some great points about the value of employee ownership; we won’t repeat these points here. Go read the column.
What you may also have seen was criticism of the column and its ideas (well-researched ideas we should point out), by Fox News. Here’s where we get confused. Fox is saying this is all part of a liberal agenda when former President Ronald Reagan was a very strong supporter of ESOPs. We offer this video as proof.
