Jason Spicer, pictured, is a PhD candidate who is currently studying at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Cooperative Business NZ hosted Jason in December 2016 during his visit to NZ when he interviewed key staff at many NZ’s co-operatives and mutuals.

Jason’s PhD dissertation will compare the NZ co-operative economy with those of the USA, Finland and France (we hope to publish this should it become available).  

Here is an interesting blog post that Jason made following his return to the USA.
