Throughout the United States, Shuman has studied such free-market initiatives as community corporations, localized banks, and community-friendly industry that preserve and strengthen the integrity of local communities. Erasing the gap between right-wing and left-wing economic concerns, Going Local is an encouraging, realistic proposal for how communities around the country can reinvent and revitalize themselves for the benefit of all citizen.
