There is one large Co-Op that works very well:

Wisconsin Dairies Co-Op is a Fortune 500 (or is it Fortune 100?) company.
But I don't think socialists like _that_ co-op. They _never_ use it as an
example of how well socialism works because it is run just like a capitalist
corporation. It's "too" successful for the "wrong reasons" I guess.
