There is no limit on the amount of coopts that can be created. There is no limit to the ability of humans to create. We simply need to refind that will. http://www.democracynow.org/2013/5/9/chicago_workers_open_new_cooperatively_owned

People starting coopts are beneficial to just about the entire community. It sets a great example for those who are sick of their bosses bullshit.

It also sets a great example of people doing things. Not just talking about it. We have WAY too many talkers and not enough doers.

Its also a great learning curve for most people. Starting a business is the easy part, almost anyone can do it. 95% of them cant stay open longer than 5 years. Its very very tough.

There are a group of three from Occupy Tampa that have started their own thing. Im not sure exactly how its going, but Im sure they are learning a lot. That alone makes it worth it in the long run.
