Locavesting: The Revolution in Local Investing and How to Profit From It

Have you been doing your part to make local purchases, but are looking to learn more about all of the ways that you can invest in your neighborhood… in your city? Yes, we all know that if you shop and eat at your local businesses, then a good portion of the money stays in the community. But it goes deeper than that. Beyond shopping locally, where are the rest of your hard earned investment dollars going? Is it possible to build local financial ecosystems? If so, what are the different components that can make that proposition viable? On Thursday, March 14, 2013, from 5:30pm until 8:30pm at the Central Library, Amy Cortese, author of the book Locavesting: The Revolution in Local Investing and How to Profit From It, will be speaking as part of the continuation of the “Get the Rust Out” speaker series.
