Auteur: Hines, Colin
Titel: Localization
Sub titel: A Global Manifesto

Governments hold up international competitiveness a the be-all and end-all of policy, presenting globalization as inevitable. The author shows that it isn't and that local economies, local autonomy and local democracy can all be protected - globally - if the aid and trade rules are changed. The text provides the arguments and examples for all those threatened by the onward march of a monolithic, undifferentiated, global consumer culture, and for those wanting to preserve local values and services - whether local food, local housing, education, transport or environment.
