Michelle Long: How locally owned businesses are starting to change the world


Michelle Long, executive director of BALLE (Business Alliance for Local Living Economies), explains how BALLE communities are using locally owned businesses to create a safe space outside the dominant system for the next economy to develop. She spoke at Shelburne Farms on June 11 at the Inspired by Slow Money conference. This audio was planned for inclusion in the June 28 Equal Time, but we ran out of time for it.

The Vermont chapter of BALLE is Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility.

Produced by Carl Etnier.
