Editorial Reviews

After the economic meltdown of 2008, the nation stands in urgent need of economic growth that s not based on risky financial bets placed by Wall Street. In search of new solutions, Brancaccio visits communities across America that are using innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity. He talks to working Americans from Maine to Washington State, and from Texas to Ohio, who are re-engineering the future, including: 1) Sustainable Connections, a collaboration of thousands of businesses committed to buying locally, hiring locally, and selling locally; 2) Yo Mama s Cookin , a cooperative of women of color who are part of a national movement to build and train cooperative groups; and 3) The Time Bank, an institution that allows people to barter their time and services. These and other efforts are built on American values of commonwealth, shared prosperity, fairness, wellness, sustainability, and creativity. Brancaccio also talks to noted economists David Korten and Jane D Arista, as well as Matthew bishop (U.S. Editor, The Economist), to explore the new pathways being charted by economic reformers. Can these experiments be nurtured and grown to provide new opportunities for our children and grandchildren?

This was a very inspirational show. And made me have hope for our future, I hope that people watch this and want to implement local ways, in your own economies, to help sustain the future of your children and hopefully continue to make them better. This movie used to be accessible on NF and online, but it looks like somehow all copies were discontinued. Probably because the big wigs would prefer to keep us in the dark on how local people can actually change there local landscapes for the greater good of all the people instead of the greedy few.
