A New Paradigm for Development

Peak Moment 158: The corporate capitalist system is destroying people and the planet. Can we imagine alternatives? Ronald Logan and Jason Schreiner’s model is based on valuing our interrelatedness and interdependency within the natural world. It replaces profit-driven with cooperative enterprises, and emphasizes a balance between local self-reliance and bioregional networks, with some global structures to meet global needs like telecommunications. They describe applying permaculture principles like the one approach in on-the-ground projects in Eugene, Oregon. (www.proutinstitute.org)
