The collection of lectures and publications from the Schumacher Center for a New Economics represents some of the foremost voices on a new economics.

Michael Shuman's lecture to the Community Land Trust in the Southern Berkshires points to the shift that is occurring from a global economy focusing on cheap goods and the protection of private bottom lines to a local economy centering on place and the protection of families, communities, and the environment. Locally owned businesses and local production encourage self-reliance, which ultimately will "systematically resolve . . . material conflicts over oil, water, land, resources, and poverty . . . mak[ing] a very important contribution to world peace."
