How to thrive in the Next Economy
Is there an alternative to an economy that devours nature in the name of endless growth? John Thackara thinks there might be and gives concrete examples from all over the globe of how this is already happening.
From a temple-led water management system in Bali that dates back hundreds of years to an innovative e-bike collective in Vienna, Thackara shows that below the radar of the mainstream media there are global communities creating a replacement economy, one that nurtures the earth and its inhabitants rather than jeopardizing its future from the ground up.
Each chapter is devoted to the creative ways people in diverse contexts tackle timeless needs: restoring the land, making homes, travelling, growing food, designing clothes, caring for each other. These quiet but widespread changes are signals of reconnection. Taken together they add up to a convincing new story about what an economy is actually for.
