Shuman's groundbreaking work offers an alternative model to the dominant view of economic development, a model that liberates and fosters the natural capacities of local businesses to grow and prosper. His book provides both a compelling case for the macroeconomic benefits of buying (and building) local, and he shows readers how easy and beneficial it is - to them and to their communities - to "go local" in their four key spending categories: goods, services, energy and finance. Ultimately, Shuman provides an optimistic vision and a practical roadmap for consumers who wonder if their spending is really paying off.
