Banyen's Description: 

From a renowned pioneer of the anti-globalization movement, here’s a primer on working towards a localized world.

From disappearing livelihoods to financial instability, from climate chaos to an epidemic of depression, we face crises on a number of seemingly unrelated fronts. This well-referenced book traces the common roots of these problems in a globalized economy that is incompatible with life on a finite planet. But Local is Our Future does more than just describe the problem: it describes the policy shifts and grassroots steps many of them already underway around the world that can move us towards the local and, thereby, towards a better world.

A pioneer of the ‘new economy’ movement, Helena Norberg-Hodge has been promoting an economics of personal, social and ecological well-being for four decades. She is the Director of the non-profit Local Futures, producer and co-director of the award-winning documentary “The Economics of Happiness,” and the author of the inspirational classic, Ancient Futures.
