Cover image of Marketplace Revolution bookWith discussions of race, reconciliation, and revolution on the forefront, there has been no better time to demand the restructuring of the economic practices that have led to the income equality and social exclusion of the current market. It is time to go beyond the trading dogma and business practices of extraction economics that merely add to existing concentrated wealth. It is time for dramatic and imaginative responses to bring the capital back to the communities. It is time for a marketplace revolution. Written by expert David Lepage, who brings with him 45 years of experience in community economic development, this book has the answer.
