|Title:||'Freehold property for mechanics': a brief insight into Starr-Bowkett societies||Contributor(s):||Darnell, M (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1031||Abstract:||Deregulation of Australia's financial system has dramatically changed the face of our financial system. One of the most notable impacts is that long established forms of co-operative finance and self-help, Building and Friendly Societies and Credit Unions, have declined in number and membership. However, rationalisation by the large banks in regional centres combined with concerns about home affordability has led to co-operative finance schemes being considered anew. This paper provides an insight into one of the oldest, most enduring and least known of co-operative finance schemes, Starr-Bowkett societies, focussing on the genesis of and major personalities behind the schemes.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||The Ninth National Labour History Conference, University of Sydney, 30 June to 2 July, 2005||Conference Details:||The Ninth National Labour History Conference, University of Sydney, 30 June to 2 July, 2005||Source of Publication:||'The Past is Before Us': The Ninth National Labour History Conference Proceedings, p. 97-106||Publisher:||Australian Society for the Study of Labour History||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||140203 Economic History||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.historycooperative.org/proceedings/asslh/darnell.html
