After shopping locally and eating locally, the next step necessary to building a livable future is investing locally.
I make the case for it in this podcast – From Wall Street to Main Street: an interview with Marco Vangelisti on local investing and Slow Money.

Why is local investing so difficult?
The answer lies in part with our securities laws introduced at the beginning of the Great Depression to protect investors.
