I am an economist who believes that popular understanding of and political power over the economy is crucial to freedom and self-determination of communities. We will be free when people have authority over the conditions which affect their lives, when we have the power to protect our ecosystems and cultures, to engage in meaningful work, to eat delicious and healthy food, and to have the physical and psychological time and space to be creative. To assert power over our economies and lives, we are engaged in social movements.

I an interested in indigenous cosmologies and visions of development, sustainability and permaculture, alterglobalization, participatory democracy, good work, great food, and creativity.
