Ellen Harriman retired 12 years ago to France, where she enjoys a quiet rural life of gardening, walking, playing bridge, participating in a book club, and writing short stories and poetry. She’s now a widow and struggling with mountains of ancient manuscripts, letters, coins, stamps, medals and pictures collected by her late husband, who worked in the antiques business in London. Ellen visits Florida in the winter to see relatives and friends. Peter Ranis, P’91, wrote “Cooperatives Confront Capitalism: Challenging the Neoliberal Economy,” a just-published book in which he explores the historical place, ideological impact and emergence of worker cooperatives in the United States, Argentina, Cuba and elsewhere. Peter writes, “Worker cooperatives represent an alternative to hierarchical capitalist and state socialist enterprises, and are a democratic means of protecting worker autonomy and employment.”
