El balance social en la economía social. Enfoques y problemática


  • Roger Spear

    () (Open University)


The present work has introduced the social balance concept in relation to recent and current practices. The different uses of social balance have been examined. Some British experiences have been reviewed, in particular the work of the British leader in this field, New Economics Foundation, as well as the subsequent works of other authors who develop this approach. Likewise, other approaches that put more emphasis on social economy values or co-operative principles have also been addressed. Lastly, some theoretic issues have been raised with the purpose of informing future research in the field.
