New Book Challenges Conventional Thinking on Sustainable Communities
Hot off the presses is a new book on sustainable communities called Going
Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in a Global Age. Written by
Michael Shuman, a Fellow and former director of the Institute for Policy
Studies, the book details how communities can strengthen their economies
through locally owned companies, import substitution, new community
financial institutions, and smart local policymaking.
"Going Local is a constructive, clearly written book that counters blind
globalism with insightful and responsible suggestions for how to root
capital in viable, local communities," says Herman Daly, co-author of For
the Common Good and Professor of Public Policy at the University of Maryland.
The fresh economic insights and practical policy solutions in Going Local
have significance for rural and urban communities alike. As an added
bonus, Going Local makes it easy for the reader to learn more and take
action with an appendix which has addresses and other contact information
for hundreds of relevant organizations.
