A SYSTEM BASED ON PROFITS IS ....Vandana Shiva on Our Industrial Economy

Local Economies vs Global Economies - Food is Not just a Commodity If we have a ravished earth there is no economy.   Globalization is taking us back to the most primitive of economies.  It is time to readjust our priorities.  We have to move from economies that are killing us, democracies that are dying, we need to move to living democracies, local living economies before too much is destroyed.

New Report: The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics

New Report: The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

The Big Downturn? Nanogeopolitics, ETC Group’s new 68-page report on global governance of nanoscale technologies, is an update of our 2005 Nanogeopolitics survey. In the intervening five years, policymakers – some kicking and screaming – have begun to acknowledge that fast-tracking nanotech has come at a price and that some sort of regulation is needed to deal with at least some of the risks nanoscale technologies pose. But governments and industry, hand in hand, have come too far and invested too much to give up on nanotech’s promise of becoming the strategic platform for global control of manufacturing, food, agriculture and health – a pillar of the 21st century’s “green economy.” This report revisits nano’s geopolitical landscape, providing a current snapshot of global investment, markets, governance and control, including intellectual property.

A GAME CHANGER? Crowdsourced Website Documents World's Entire Food System

A GAME CHANGER? Crowdsourced Website Documents World's Entire Food System | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

A new, crowd-sourced website plans to document every angle of the food system. Given its stated aim of documenting "the entire food system", and given that ANYONE can upload photos and tell the story of their food, it seems like there is an opportunity for activists to tell the stories of the industrial food system through this platform too.
