Localist Movements in a Global Economy

David J. Hess

The MIT Press

This chapter examines whether localism can be just and sustainable. It analyzes the arguments raised against the localist vision of an alternative global economy that is believed to be able to bring about a more sustainable and just world order. It suggests that localism should not be rejected based on criticisms alone and highlights the importance of evaluating localism as a variable reform movement that has the potential to address the issues of justice and sustainability better than others.

Keywords:   localism, alternative global economy, world order, reform movement, justice, sustainability
