Economic Aspects of Cooperative Marketing of Forest Products
Abstract:The successful functioning of cooperative marketing associations in a number of fields has caused foresters to wonder how far this type of organization is adaptable to the handling of forest products. In two previous articles in the JOURNAL OF FORESTRY1 a number of possible advantages and disadvantages of cooperative marketing of timber were brought out. In the present article the analysis of this type of organization is carried a step farther by discussing several phases of cooperatives in general as related to theoretical possibilities of forestry cooperatives. Economic aspects alone are considered. No feature is completely covered, but it is believed that the success of cooperatives in other fields indicates favorable opportunities in forestry.
