Mutualism (movement)

Mutualism (also known as the mutualist movement or movement of mutuals) is a mutual insurances, and mutual funds. The movement encourages and assists the provision of mutual benefits against risks to those accessing its funds and or the elevation of their material and spiritual living standards, by regular payment or contribution.[1][2] Mutualism, institutionalized through mutual funds, has been universally recognized as a generator or embryo of classical forecast and modern social security systems, and currently coexists with them.[3] Although the fall in the popularity of mutual funds in many social environments coincided with the start of public social security system in the early decades of the 20th century.

Originating from an adaptation of mutual aid.[4]

Building off the Mutualist movement of the 18th Century, Sara Horowitz, founder and Executive Director of Freelancers Union has identified a series of related phenomena that she calls New Mutualism.[5]
