“The co-operative ideal is as old as human society. It is the idea of conflict and competition as a principle of economic progress that is new. The development of the ideal of co-operation in the nineteenth century can best be understood as an attempt to make explicit a principle which is inherent in the constitution of society byt which had been forgotten in the turmoil and disintegration of rapid economic change.”
A M Carr-Saunders, P Sargant Florence and Robert Peers, Consumers’ Co-operation in Great Britain, 1938
