WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women
A Gaean economy is one that follows the principles of nature, describing a cycle of giving back what is taken to create a balance that is equitable and sustainable. Communities which practice these principles enjoy both self-reliance and diversity. Here, Susan Meeker-Lowry exposes many of the problems with our current money system and shows us how local reinvestment in recycling, land trusts and food co-ops can keep money and resources flowing within the community. Individuals seeking investment opportunities can find local, regional and national service organizations listed here that meet people's basic needs. With details on the scope, function and investment opportunities of such groups nationwide, and examples of successful programs, this book is an incisive tool for using your money to create social change.
