The Recovered Factory Movement in Argentina - in which workers assume control and ownership of factories abandoned by their owners - has piqued the interest of social activists worldwide. However, despite a noticeable buzz within leftist circles, the movement has received little more than a cursory examination from its enthusiasts. This note attempts to nudge the discourse in a substantive direction by explaining the pertinent law, discussing the changes sought by the movement, and analyzing the accompanying policy issues. In so doing, this note is meant to serve as a starting point to encourage more exhaustive treatment of the relevant laws and issues.
