While I draw on some writing–and much inspiration–from the work of those in other parts of the world, I also recognize and honor the responsibility that we have to forge our own ideas about solidarity economy. I hope that this chapter can contribute to that conversation. 2 Contemporary uses of the term appear to have emerged in both France and South America–specifically Colombia and Chile–in the early 1980s. European concepts of ´economie solidaire emerged from a long tradition of “social economy” activism and policy oriented toward addressing social and economic exclusion through “third sector” alternatives to conventional market and state-centered institutions.

Other authors place the number of registered cooperatives in 2006 at 104,070, and state that 81% of those cooperatives are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with between 5-10 workers (D´ıaz, 2009, p. 19). The number of cooperatives in Venezuela reached 150,000 by 2009, but since many are inactive, some authors estimate that the real number would be around 30,000 cooperatives (number calculated based on the assumption that there was a 20% survival rate) (D´ıaz, 2009, p. 28). Whether the number is on the order of 30,000 or 150,000, growth is enormous and surprising and its impact on solidarity economics is significant.

While such “blueprints” for alternative economic structures can be very useful as tools for clarifying and motivating our work, they can be problematic as core social change strategies for at least two reasons. First, blueprints often miss the richness of what might emerge from a collective process of imagination and creation; no one person or group is capable of figuring out an economic structure for millions of others to live in. Second, they can lead to a very unfortunate choice of political paths: blueprint in hand, we either convince everyone that we’re right (unlikely) or take over the government and impose our plan on everyone (unethical).
