Co-op Calculations

New, 1 comment

It's been months since we've seen a good Park Slope Food Co-op slapfight. Perhaps the days of co-op rants have been replaced by careful calculations about the wisdom of co-op membership? One Brooklynian poster tries to make it so: "Its a personal decision based on your own utility curve. You might dismiss the negatives completely, but you still have to balance the value you place on free time against the benefits....If you can quantify the variables I've mentioned, you can create a formula. Where T(v) = Time value, B = value you place on the benefits, and H = value you place on the hassles. If T(v) is greater than B-H, then you should not join." [Brooklynian via FiPS]
