Us Depending On Us

Our communities don't have grocery stores, dine-in restaurants, fine clothing and shoe stores, adequate business support, I can go on and on. I plan to create co-ops to help our communities take control of our economic future and overcome barriers to resources and business develop. We can supply our own needs and control the services and resources that are offered in our community. Since co-op members are local residents, business profits remain and circulate within the community which will increase our community's economic value. Our community will have local control of our capital, local ownership, local hiring, business development, and other supportive resources for residence. Community co-ops will also create community social networks and social cohesion; which are essential elements of strong and healthy communities.

How can we increase the circulation of dollars in the 9th Ward? Post your ideas on this blog.
