But the hope is real: individuals and communities around the world have already begun moving in a different direction. Drawing on the visionary work of John Ruskin, Lewis Mumford, E.F. Schumacher, and other pioneering thinkers, Magnuson argues that mindful and concerted action can shape the future for the better. With an emphasis on developing new and very different economic institutions that are centered on self-reliance, ecological permanence, stability, and a celebration of human creativity, he shows that the true great transformation is already underway and it’s up to us to continue it.
