Growing A Local Peace Economy Daily #96

In the leaky bucket analogy for local economies, money flows into a region to circulate through local businesses like water into a bucket. Water that leaks out is money that escapes the local economy to pay for imports. The more watertight the bucket, the more wealth retained." — Susan Witt

Daily Practice: Keeping the wealth in a community is about more than money. Keeping circulation local changes our connection to where we live and those we live with. If everyone kept just $100 local we would move $35B back to our communities. Watch where you put your $$ today. Even if you are spending out of your community are you supporting fair trade and community power or exploitation and corporate greed? Your choices matter.

Buying local is key to strong economies
What choices did you make today?
