Local Dollars Local Sense

There are a number of books that I am reading at present. Michael Shuman’s is one of them. I am passionate about promoting and developing local business and therefore this a book caught my eye. It takes a different approach to most and provides advice on how local business can get capital to develop their business. It is focused on American business models, but the ideas are relevant to other countries. I found it heavy going in some chapters whilst I learned a lot from other chapters. One of the interesting models was how co-operatives can help small towns develop their businesses. This is an ideal book for town planners and those interested in developing small communities.
