Schumacher Center for New EconomicsNational sustainable economics & exchange organization.
Founded in 1980 the Schumacher Center for a New Economics works to envision the elements of a just and regenerative global economy; undertakes to apply these elements in its home region of the Berkshires in western Massachusetts; and then develops the educational programs to share the results more broadly, thus encouraging replication.
The Center recognizes that the environmental and equity crises we now face have their roots in the current economic system.
- a fair and regenerative economy is possible and that citizens working for the common interest can build systems to achieve it
- our natural commons are best held by the regional community
- money issue can be democratized
- ownership should be more diversified and that labor should have a part in the ownership structure
Mission StatementThe mission is to envision a just and regenerative economy; apply the concepts locally; then share the results for broad replication.
