Lunchbox/Soapbox: Michael Shuman on Going Local: Creating Self-Reliant Communities in the Global Age
Michael H. Shuman argues that there are a number of initiatives communities must take to support local economies and small business – and that the knock-on effects of local investment are vast: building strong communities and fostering employment, food and industry growth and security.
Shuman has been working on local economy issues for 15 years. He’s an economist, attorney, author, and entrepreneur.
