THE COUNTER ECONOMY: A WHOLE NEW WORLD IS GROWING UP FROM THE ASHES - A presentation by Katie Patrick.
The Counter Economy; a self sustaining ethical economy that respects the boundaries of nature. It is growing on top of the existing polluting economy. It grows just like a plant growing out the side of brick wall. Beneath it, the incumbent unsustainable industry is slowly disintegrating.
How do we help this plant grow? We change the world with what we buy.
A purchase can be revolutionary act. A purchase can feed human trafficking, war and exploitation. Or a purchase can build a revolution. There is change in the air: 'counter culture' is turning into the 'counter economy' and deeply challenging the nature of corporate and political power in our world today.
The greatest power to challenge, is the power within ourselves.
