Capper—Volstead Corporations and Other Types of Business—Cooperative Principles

Abstract

Once the legal status of farm cooperatives had been established along with the economic bases, this form of organization was accepted as one of the four ways of doing business under the free enterprise system. Let’s look a bit farther into just what type of business organization was provided for in the Capper-Volstead Act and then compare it with other types or forms used in the United States.
