GOMEZ NUNEZ, Nicolás; ROJAS TORREJON, Pilar; BENITEZ ZAMUDIO, María Francisca  and  SANCHEZ ARELLANO, Álvaro. Self-management in economic diversity. Cooperatives, clubs and productive workshops in the Marga- Marga province in the Valparaíso region, Chile. Cult.-hombre-soc. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.1, pp.191-224. ISSN 0716-1557.

This article presents the results of a comparison between three types of self-managed organizations which produce goods and services, and their value may or may not be translated into prices and money. It also describes the interactions that these organizations have with the economic actors and political agents in the province of Marga Marga.

At a conceptual level, the effective community and ecological system categories are used to interpret the data. These were constructed between 2016 and 2017, through a case study methodology. In this exercise we sought to answer the following question: What dimensions of self-management are significant to understand the trajectory of an organization that produces goods and services?

Among the results, it stands out that maintaining the trajectory of a self-managed economic organization takes two forms. On one hand, cooperatives and productive workshops participate in agglomerations of small-scale productive and commercial organizations. On the other hand, clubs and art groups grow in homogeneous ecological systems where the municipality plays an important role.

Keywords : Self-management; Effective Community; Ecological System.
