Brownbag with President of Mondragon International

May 5, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Institute for Policy Studies is hosting a brownbag lunch with Josu Ugarte, President of Mondragon International on Tuesday, May 5th in Washington, D.C.

Ugarte presented a paper to the London School of Economic in July of 2012 providing metrics on how Mondragon’s “multi-localization” approach both facilitates globalizing factory-based production while creating more domestic employment with higher wages as a direct result of internationalizing operations. Multi-localization contradicts the financial rationale for outsourcing and off-shoring based on global labor arbitrage. More information: http://www.ips-dc.org/events/brownbag-josu-ugarte-speaks/
