The authors call instead for a new economics and politics based on a subsistence perspective."--BOOK JACKET. "They explain subsistence as empowerment based on peoples' own strengths and their cooperation with each other and with nature. Rather than the endless accumulation of wealth, the aim of the subsistence perspective is happiness, quality of life and human dignity. The authors show how such a perspective is not only necessary today but already practised in diverse forms in both North and South: in urban as well as in rural areas, in agriculture as well as in markets."--BOOK JACKET." ;
