The industrial model of the big corporation, factory, etc. base their success on two basic elements
- The division of labor that allows individuals to specialize in areas of their strength and
- Economies of scale that allow overhead costs to be minimized
For that reason, except in very small “niche markets” home production is overwhelmed by large businesses.
I’m not trying to make home businesses compete with big corporations, but it would be good if home businesses could network together in certain ways to boost their profits.
That’s why I wanted to point you to this free download: Case Studies in Worker Owned Businesses from MIT.
