Community-Supported Economy: A cultural transition

If we are to transition to an economic system that is both equitable and sustainable, one that reflects unique regional cultures, cares for the well-being of its workers, and fosters stewardship of the fragile ecosystem, we will need an economic system that values independent businesses with deep roots in their local communities. The result would be an economy that encourages more labor-intensive, small-batch production transported over short distances, creating more jobs but not more ‘stuff,’ with a smaller carbon footprint than that of a global economy with centralized production systems.

To achieve this economic transition, we will also need a cultural transition.
