Author, economist, attorney, and entrepreneur, Michael H. Shuman has authored, coauthored, or edited eight books, including, the award-winning, “The Small-Mart Revolution”, “Going Local”, and, his newest, “Local Dollars, Local Sense: How to Shift Your Money from Wall Street to Main Street and Achieve Real Prosperity”(Chelsea Green Publishing). In this book, Michael shows investors how to use their money to help local businesses and build resilient regional economies. Considering that not even 1 percent of the $30 trillion Americans’ have in long-term savings reaches local small businesses, this book serves as a much needed resource and guide through the expanding realm of local investment choices—from institutional lending to investment clubs and networks, local investment funds, community ownership, crowd-funding, local stock exchanges, and more.
