Localism

Green (Living) Review

Local Money, Local Industry, Local Food, Local Everything by Michael Smith (Veshengro) In order to transition successfully to a post-oil age world we must localize everything as much as possible. The Native Americans, the Injuns, traded for things that they could not obtain in their area or make, but wanted, and there will thus be such incidents in such a localized economy of the post-oil society and era.

Localism and the Internet

Green (Living) Review

By Ajax Greene: Many “buy local” campaigns are very welcoming of the local chain store on the corner, but are anti-internet. Let me be totally clear: Localism loves the internet — when the sellers are locally owned and independent.

Buy Local

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Why should you buy local? There are all too many local, especially family-owned and co-operative, stores these days going out of business due to the low prices of cheaply made items from the massive discount department stores. Do yourself and your neighborhood a favor by supporting local shops. So, therefore, please, pay the extra half-dollar or dollar and buy a quality product from a local shop. That is not buying local, in the real sense.

Loving Local: Place, Economy and Community

Making a commitment to this place and taking responsibility for its well-being was the first step I took toward helping to build a sustainable local economy in my region.
