Yes, it is your ‘right’ to live in a large house and commute an hour and a half into work in your four-wheel drive, alone, but it is your responsibility to ‘offset’ the externalities of these possessions and activities, and if it is not able to be physically ‘offset’, or there’s a net disadvantage to society, then I think we need to think about whether allowing it altogether is ‘right’. They include: • removal of subsidies and regulations that favour non-local production and non-local provision of services; • shifting the burden of taxation away from employment and incomes and on to land site-values and the use of energy; this will reduce land prices and internalise the costs of centralised energy-intensive production and long distance transport, thus making access to land (and housing) more affordable to local people and encouraging local production for local consumption; • the introduction of a Citizen's Income, which will make it easier for local people to take up part -time paid work, and to undertake unpaid work which contributes directly to environmentally and socially desirable activities in the local community economy; • working out ways of encouraging money to circulate locally within a local economy, instead of leaking out of it; • permitting local government authorities to issue local currencies and encouraging local community groups to set up LETS,7 when too little national currency is in local circulation to provide the means of exchange required to support purely local economic transactions; • encouraging the setting up of local banking and financial institutions, My personal experience in this sphere has included a study of finance for local employment initiatives for DG V and OECD in 1985, and in 1996 I took part in a conference held by the Territorial Action for Social Cohesion (TASC) programme supported by DG V. 7 For further discussion of Local Exchange Trading Systems (LETS) see Chapter 4. www.jamesrobertson.com 36 to enable local people to invest their savings in their own local economy; making sure that planning policies encourage local shops in villages, suburbs and small town centres, and discourage the monopolisation of local retailing and other trading by branches of businesses based elsewhere; and developing local indicators, which will make it possible to monitor changes in the social, environmental and economic sustainability of the locality, including the impacts of branches of outside organisations on local employment, local production for local consumption, local flows of income and spending, saving and investing, and the local environment.
