The Making of a Localist
Broadcast on 2015/11/07 (PT)
Michael Shuman, Co-founder and Research Director, Cutting Edge Capital
Michael Shuman is an economist, attorney, author and entrepreneur, and one of the world’s leading experts on community economics. AND he is a truly wonderful human being. Did I mention that he has also authored, coauthored or edited eight books? And that he is a founding member of BALLE (Business Alliance for Local Living Economies)? Michael has given an average of more than one invited talk PER WEEK, mostly to local governments and universities for the past 30 years. I want to talk to Michael about lots of things and believe we would have no trouble doing a two hour show but for this show, I want to talk to Michael about two of his books: The Local Economy Solution – How Innovative, Self-Financing “Pollinator Enterprises Can Grow Jobs and Prosperity and his latest work Local Dollars, Local Sense – How to Shift Your Money from Wall Street to Main Street and Achieve Real Prosperity. I cannot wait to interview this amazing thought leader, game changer and beacon of hope for a world that works for everyone. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
