9780865717077: The Resilience Imperative: Cooperative Transitions to a Steady-state Economy

We find ourselves between a rock and a hot place—compelled by the intertwined forces of peak oil and climate change to reinvent our economic life at a much more local and regional scale. The Resilience Imperative argues for a major SEE (social, ecological, economic) change as a prerequisite for replacing the paradigm of limitless economic growth with a more decentralized, cooperative, steady-state economy.

The authors present a comprehensive series of strategic questions within the broad areas of:

  • Energy sufficiency
  • Local food systems
  • Interest-free financing
  • Affordable housing and land reform
  • Sustainable community development

Each section is complemented by case studies of pioneering community initiatives rounded out by a discussion of transition factors and resilience reflections.

With a focus on securing and sustaining change, this provocative book challenges deeply embedded cultural assumptions. Profoundly hopeful and inspiring, The Resilience Imperative affirms the possibilities of positive change as it is shaped by individuals, communities, and institutions learning to live within our ecological limits.

Michael Lewis is the executive director of the Center for Community Enterprise and is well-known internationally as a practitioner, author, educator, and leader in the field of community economic development.

Patrick Conaty is an honorary research fellow at the University of Birmingham and a director of Common Futures. Since 1999 he has worked for the new economics foundation (nef), where he has produced a wide range of publications about predatory lending, financial inclusion, community land trusts, and social venture finance.

From the Back Cover:

TIME FOR A SEE CHANGE
SOCIAL, ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMIC STRATEGIES FOR LIFE AFTER GROWTH


A new kind of world is possible ― this book makes that clear. The question is whether we're willing to do the work to get there.― Bill McKibben, author Deep Economy

Resilience is the watchword for our dawning era of economic and environmental instability. This timely book offers a wide range of practical suggestions and inspiring examples to help us build more resilient communities. ― Richard Heinberg, author, The End of Growth, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute

Navigating transition from growth to resilience is a formidable challenge, but together we can reinvent our economic life at a much more local and regional scale. The Resilience Imperative argues for replacing the paradigm of limitless economic growth with a decentralized, cooperative, steady-state economy.

The authors explore a comprehensive series of strategic questions, community initiatives and transition factors within the areas of:

  • Community land trusts for affordable housing and workspace
  • Low-carbon urban partnerships and energy sufficiency
  • Stewarding the commons and local food systems
  • Fair Trade banking and fee-based finance
  • Economic democracy and Trusteeship companies

    This provocative book challenges many of our deeply embedded cultural assumptions. Profoundly hopeful and inspiring, The Resilience Imperative affirms the limitless scope for positive change created when individuals, communities and institutions learn to live within our ecological limits.

    This is a book that puts flesh on the occupy movement’s call for an economic alternative ... at once visionary and practical. ― Robin Murray, Senior Visiting Fellow, London School of Economics and author of Co-operation in the Age of Google

    Michael Lewis is the Executive Director of the Canadian Center for Community Renewal.

    Pat Conaty is a Fellow of new economics foundation and a research associate of C'Co-operatives UK.
