Define 'local economy'?

Here are 2 examples: ~

1 example is the money distribution model, where money is distributed to people in the area to buy stuff. ie (Food and Gas and Bill payments)

The other example is agrarian, where people work at farming produce and livestock. (The local village)

Well, unless you are town mayor or something, the only economy you can affect is the balance of your own pocketbook.

Did you want to open a business? I think you can get loans to do that. Or, you can look into a local civic society and see if they know how to do that. Try the Chamber of Commerce, maybe.

There's a saying: money makes the [local economy] go 'round. The big question is: do you allow Walmart to gain a foothold? It's either a foundation slab to build the economic health of a community upon, or the devil incarnate that destroys local business. Choose this day whom you will serve.

Some people don't know how to find the money though. You wouldn't believe how many people in the world have never visited a money tree farm, let alone planted one themselves.

I find knocking over banks to be a quick, easy solution and you don't even need to plant the seeds for money trees.  Those seeds can be so temperamental, especially in the Texas climate.

Build a business (product or service) and hire local people.  Spend your profits as locally as possible.

This takes money.  We're back to money.  Now, do you want to use your own money or other people's money?  If the latter, TheTri had a very good suggestion.  If the former, well, uh, hmmm......get a job and save it up.  Or something.

Or something  J Michael will disagree with me, but a kimchi making business in your neck of the woods could be wildly popular.  You may have to encourage many Koreans to come to your town for this to work.  But then they will run you out of business.  Oh well, never mind.  I guess go to the local gas station and buy a candy bar can help that guy's business, thus aiding the local economy.

Or something  Open a Dutch brewery.  You know, brewing Dutch people, er...I mean beer.

Planting a colony takes rich (read, expensive) soil.  Besides, it would make him an evil colonialist.

An economy is an organic system.  At its most basic, you need to supply a product that there is a demand for.  Maybe even several.

Sow seed as you will, but do not work the land. What abundance comes forth shall suffice for all wiping needs, maybe even double what the Monsanto toilet cobs can provide.

I read in a book somewhere that when the contradictions in the productive forces and the relations of production come to a head, a precipitous crisis will ensue, compelling the proletariat to revolt and install their dictatorship, which will gradually wither away after the reactionary elements are defeated and we have made the transition to a classless, moneyless economy based on the principle, "from each according to ability, to each according to need."
