Year: 2010Much of the wealth created in low-wealth and rural communities slips away. This paper examines how more of the wealth generated can remain in these communities and accrue to the benefit of low-wealth families and individuals. Building on research by the Rural Policy Research Institute, the paper presents and analyzes several Frameworks for Thinking and Action for capturing more of the wealth generated in three sectors (Food Systems, Energy Systems and Ecosystem Services) and how the lessons learned can be applied to other sectors.
