Post-Soviet Co-ops: Mongolian Herders Borrow a Tool From the Recent Past

Members of Post-Soviet Mongolian tribes return to a co-op way of life in order to survive - but this time, the co-ops are community run, rather than state-run. Because climate change has degraded the quality of soil and made it difficult for pasture-raised animals to survive, these tribes have banded together to manage pastureland more efficiently and sell their products, as a group, to national companies.
