The Center for American Progress, a Washington, DC think tank, released an interesting report today titled:
Capitalism for Everyone
Encouraging Companies to Adopt Employee Ownership Programs and Broad-Based Profit Sharing
By Karla Walter, David Madland, and Danielle Corley
More information and the report can be found here.
ESOP Association President, J. Michael Keeling stated, “We agree with this report that recommends that policy makers need to increase programs to ensure that more employees are able to share in owning the companies in which they work and thus able to share in the wealth they help create. Most of all, it is very welcome to read that one of our nation’s leading think tanks recognizes that broad-based ownership is a goal that all national leaders, no matter what political party she or he belongs, no matter whether so-called ‘left’ or ‘right’ should work toward.”
