The Comparative Study Between Chinese Agricultural Cooperative and Canadian New Generation Cooperative

Ruxiang LIU


Cooperative, as an organization of the weak originated from the need of economic alliance. It is an inevitable result of the development of market economy. But with the increasingly competitive and gradually diverse requirement, there are many organization structures of cooperative in practice. Each has its characteristic, some may stress the help with each other, like traditional cooperative, the others may pay attention to the profit returns, like new generation cooperative. In China, a new legislation related to the cooperative has just implemented for several years, although the management of agriculture cooperatives was unified and the new system supplies played a role gradually, there are still some questions need solve, in which a very important one is whether the legislation has set enough choices for the people who want to adopt the structure of cooperative. According to the current provisions, Chinese cooperative largely can be classified as traditional cooperative which may be suit for most, but in practice, there are more cases about members dominate the cooperative and democracy management mechanisms are often undermined. However, in my opinion, it can be interpreted as the need for the institution innovation from another angle, so it is necessary for legislator to consider system supplying about new forms of cooperative.
