This chapter evaluates various proposals for policy change aimed at strengthening opportunities for the creation of stronger locally oriented economies. It describes new financial products and new investment ideas that could potentially improve capital flows into local businesses and nonprofit organizations. It also discusses the local and national level policy changes required for an alternative economy and offers suggestions reforms supporting localism can be linked to other reforms geared towards the social and environmental responsibilities of multinational corporations.

Keywords:   policy change, locally oriented economies, financial products, investment, capital flows, alternative economy, reforms, multinational corporations
