Vermont’s New Economy: A look at the New Economy by the numbers
Our publication focuses on the emergence of the New Economy in our home base of Vermont, USA. Already, there the beginnings of a New Economy across Vermont, from the preservation of our working lands and the establishment of socially-responsible businesses to opportunities for investing locally and new ways to measure our progress.
Vermont’s New Economy focuses on both numbers and stories from across the state. The numbers provide a snapshot of how Vermont is doing, while the stories that accompany them illustrate some of the innovative approaches already working here. Through these numbers and stories, we hope to provide a “sense of the possible” in designing strong and sustainable economies.
Vermont’s New Economy was published October 2013 in conjunction with Vermont’s New Economy Week October 10-20, 2013. For more information, please contact sarahdonellameadowsorg.
