We buy local and eat local. So why is it so hard to invest  local? The truth is, our financial markets have evolved to serve  big business, a fact only underscored by the recent financial  crisis and bailout. Wall Street has come roaring back, but Main  Street is fighting for its life. In catering to those companies  deemed too big too fail, weve created a new  group that could be labeled too small too succeed.   Author Amy Cortese believes that by investing locally, in the  companies that create jobs and healthy communities, we can begin to  rebuild the economy and repair our tattered financial  system Locavesting is a how- to guide for investing  locally and explores the emerging phenomenon of  locavesting through narrative accounts of people like  Dante Hess, Chris Lindstrom and Woody Tasch, who are the pioneers  of this movement -- the Muhammad Yunuss of the capital  markets. She also illustrates how, in many ways, locavesting is a  return to the very roots of our economic system -- and our  humanity. The book offers a totally fresh perspective on investing  and explores powerful new ideas for making capitalism work again  for the rest of us.
