Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Name the PCI's next book!

In early 2012, Post Carbon Institute is releasing its next book. It's an easy-to-read guide to getting your money out of the Wall Street casino and investing it locally, where it'll perform better for both you and your community. And we're thrilled to have PCI Fellow Michael Shuman (Going Local, The Small-Mart Revolution), one of the nation's top experts in local economies, as the author.

But we still need a title!

From now until Monday, September 12th, we're turning to our online community to suggest titles for this exciting new book — which, by the way, will be the first of our new Resilience Guides series (more on that later). All you need to do is:

  1. Read the introduction to Michael's new book.
  2. Suggest a title and subtitle (as many as you want) in comments below or in an email to me.

And if we choose your title, you'll get:

  • A free copy of the book signed by the author.
  • A special thank you in the book's acknowledgments.

To learn more about Michael Shuman and his previous books, visit his PCI Fellow profile page.

Editorial Notes: From what I've heard about Post Carbon's "Resilience Guides," they represent an exciting new direction in the response to peak oil, etc. I'm told that we'll hear more about them in the coming months. -BA
