I think the question of whether to openly discuss an individual household's 
finances, especially if someone is late with payments, is each community's 
decision to make. I don't think radical openness about finances or anything 
else is necessarily more or less "cohousing" than radical privacy. The 
cohousing culture part of it, in my opinion, is more bound into whether your 
community considers its options with input solicited from all members before 
choosing a way forward. 

My two cents. Your mileage may vary. And all that.
