Shuman highlights numerous trends that are making the old "bigger is better" economies-of-scale argument obsolete, and he describes a variety of innovative strategies these businesses are using to successfully compete with their oversized competitors. He also shows how consumers, investors, and policymakers can support their own communities by "going local.""--Jacket."@en ;

Crunch the numbers and you'll find that locally owned businesses turn out to be much more reliable generators of good jobs, economic growth, tax dollars, community wealth, charitable contributions, social stability, and political participation. Unlike their global competitors, they do this without massive tax breaks and subsidies that often put local economies in a permanent hole." ;
