This book argues for the construction of democratic community-level institutions: profoundly more democratic than representative government; environmentally sustainable but not disconnected from long distance global networks; and having sufficient local economic strength to fight both the colonization and marginalization that globalization so often inflicts on local communities. Another potential improvement would be an economics aimed at increasing people's well-being, not measured in wealth and income, but incorporating other criteria of social progress such as quality of life; solidarity; and the development of non-commercial caring relations.
