Localist Movements in a Global Economy

The MIT Press

This chapter examines the type of localism that is organized as a movement in support of locally owned businesses and the politics of local retailing. It analyzes case studies of reuse centers as a form of retail localism and discusses the implications of the tension resulting from the analysis of organizational mission statements of independent business associations. It also compares the history of the anti-chain store movement of the 1920s and the 1930s with the growth of grassroots “buy local” campaigns since 1995.

Keywords:   localism, local retailing, locally owned businesses, reuse centers, retail localism, mission statements, independent business associations, anti-chain store movement, buy local campaigns
