J. K. Gibson-Graham,Jenny Cameron,: Take Back the Economy : An Ethical Guide for Transforming Our Communities
In the wake of economic crisis on a global scale, more and more people are reconsidering their role in the economy and wondering what they can do to make it work better for humanity and the planet. In this innovative book, J. K. Gibson-Graham, Jenny Cameron, and Stephen Healy contribute complex understandings of economics in practical terms: what can we do right now, in our own communities, to make a difference? Full of exercises, thinking tools, and inspiring examples from around the world, "Take Back the Economy" shows how people can implement small-scale changes in their own lives to create ethical economies. There is no manifesto here, no one prescribed model; rather, readers are encouraged and taught how to take back the economy in ways appropriate for their own communities and context, using what they already have at hand. "Take Back the Economy" dismantles the idea that the economy is separate from us and best comprehended by experts. Instead, the authors demonstrate that the economy is the outcome of the decisions and efforts we make every day. The economy is thus reframed as a space of ethical action something we can shape and alter according to what is best for the well-being of people and the planet. The book explores what people are already doing to build ethical economies, presenting these deeds as mutual concerns: What is necessary for survival, and what do we do with the surplus produced beyond what will fulfill basic needs? What do we consume, and how do we preserve and replenish the commons those resources that can be shared to maintain all? And finally, how can we invest in a future worth living in? Suitable for activists and students alike, "Take Back the Economy" will be of interest to anyone seeking a more just, sustainable, and equitable world. "

It is only now that he has chosen, in his own words, to share the totality of his lifethe very public and the incredibly privatewith the world. This engrossing autobiography, the real story of the godlike George Morris, beautifully demonstrates his ultimate humanity. "
