Abstract


There is a general view in economic literature that cooperatives are under-invested. Currently the issue is on the International Co-operative Alliance’s agenda. To contribute to this topic we undertake three case studies from large dairy cooperatives to learn about how they have faced these alleged constraints. This raises questions because not all the successful cooperatives which have been studied have introduced changes to overcome the supposed limitations of cooperative ownership rights.
