About the Author
Michael H. Shuman is an economist, attorney, author, entrepreneur, and leading visionary on community economics. He is director of local economy programs for Telesis Corporation, a nonprofit affordable housing company, and currently an adjunct instructor at Bard College's business school in New York City. He is the author of nine previous books, including The Small-Mart Revolution; Local Dollars, Local Sense; and The Local Economy Solution.
"As so many Americans feel powerless to confront a financial system designed to serve the few, Shuman offers us real choices: tools that align our lives with our values. That's power. I love this highly readable, timely, surprising book."
--Frances Moore Lappé, coauthor of Daring Democracy and author of Diet for a Small Planet

"Local cheese, local beer--and local investing! This is a valuable guide to taking money out of the few giant banks (which are probably using it to underwrite the fossil fuel industry) and putting it to work close to home!"
--Bill McKibben, author of Falter

"Once again Michael Shuman has given us a clear manual for how well-meaning, good people (the 99.99 percent of us) can put their money where their hearts are--in communities where they live, in local businesses, trade, and retail."
--Vicki Robin, coauthor of Your Money or Your Life and author of Blessing the Hands That Feed Us
