Small Change, Big Deal
Small Change, Big Deal: Money as if People Mattered
As we consider the plight of our consumer-driven economy , it is easy to forget that money is about relationship: between individuals and between communities. In our current financial mess, it is worth reminding ourselves of community-based alternatives, and to look closely at microcredit, a model of peer lending to enable people to move out of poverty. From Bangladesh, from South Africa, from Ghana, and from the East End of London, we are given a worm’s eye view of small-scale work, of personal transformation, and the building of community. Small and local is still beautiful, and has much to teach us.
