Holy Grail


The major writers of our time who are warning us of the coming economic storms all arrive at the same conclusion: we must go to a local economy that produces the majority of it's own needs! However, all of them hit the same dead-end wall; they are unable to describe such a system nor how to convert to it in a manner that will not cause more economic distress in the process.

The Co-Op Village system is the Holy Grail they seek. It describes a local economy system and how it can be integrated safely into our current economy.
