The Take – when workers in economic free-fall took over the factories

Here’s an interesting link to an article on The Take, a documentary on how in 2001 laid-off and desperate workers in the midst of that country’s economic and social upheaval commandeered the idle factories they used to work in, and made them productive once more. This kind of thing has arguably had a role in that country’s recovery from an economic pickle even worse than what we’ve got.

Another more legal redistribution of wealth to the workers is exemplified by Kerala’s land to the tiller movement.
