Do One Thing for a better world ... Together we make a world of difference

23. A Better World Economy

"We could dramatically accelerate innovations
in sustainability and social justice
just by making choices to use our money
for positive solutions."
-- Carol Newell

The global economy is a runaway train that is causing more and more suffering in the world. The current 'profit before people' system is causing the gap between the very rich and the very poor to grow larger each year.

In order to transform the global economy into a true global community, we need to create a Better World Economy - an economic system that gives value to other commodities besides money. Then we can create more sustainable local, national and global communities.

If it keeps going the way it's going, the global economy will eventually collapse, causing widespread suffering and devastation. But there are many things we can do to change the economic system before a catastrophe.

Money, when used for good, can help change the world. Put your resources to work for a better world. Be conscious of the way you spend your money. Purchase Fair Trade products - products that are supplied by workers and growers who are paid fair wages, and work in safe conditions. Demand corporate responsibility -- with our purchasing power, we can force corporations to manufacture and distribute their goods in ways that respect workers and protect our planet. Take a bite out of corporate control by getting money out of politics.
