Break Free of the Global Economy – Go Local

Dear Reader,

We’ve been inundated with positive responses to Go Local, our Winter 2007 issue of YES! Magazine. It’s clear that our call for independence from the global corporate economy is resonating with people all over the country who are ready for a change.

As we enter a new year, the prospects for addressing the big issues nationally and globally appear more hopeful than they have been for many years, but often it is at the local level where the choices we make have the greatest impact.

Go Local shows you how to invest in your community, from supporting local food, local business, and local power to reclaiming our common spaces and restoring a life-centered economy.

Take a look at our articles online. And if you aren’t already a subscriber, try us out with a Free Trial Issue.
