(p.241) Conclusion
Localist Movements in a Global Economy

David J. Hess

The MIT Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the localist movement in the U.S. and its relevance to the issues of sustainability, social justice, and urban development. It highlights the internal diversity of localism and shows that localist political thought draws on various strands of political ideology, including liberalism, neoliberalism, and communalism. It argues that localism is by no means a panacea for the problem of rechanneling economic development in more sustainable and just directions but it has the potential to contribute to social and environmental responsibility goals.

Keywords:   localist movement, U.S., sustainability, social justice, urban development, economic development, social responsibility, environmental responsibility
