Local Dollars, Local Sense

How to Shift Your Money from Wall Street to Main Street and Achieve Real 
Prosperity

by Michael H. Shuman
Local Dollars, Local Sense by Michael Shuman probes the future of 
investing -- making the case for investors to put their money into 
building local businesses and food and energy systems, and otherwise 
creating healthy regional economies that meet the stresses of a 
post-peak-oil world. The book tells readers how to find or develop 
opportunities for investing locally, explains the obstacles, and 
introduces readers to investors who have taken on the challenge and put 
their theories about local investing into action.

"Local small businesses employ more people and respond to community 
needs better than big corporations do—but nearly all our investment 
dollars support Wall Street banks and huge companies. The path to local 
investing has been strewn with obstacles. Michael Shuman clears a path 
for us all, showing how local investing can help solve some of America's 
biggest social, economic, environmental, and political problems. This is 
a book many of us have been waiting for."
