Victoria, Canada - University of Victoria, School of Environmental Studies – Course E406 - Alternative Economies for Social Change

A consideration of the many forms of economic activity that go on outside competitive, profit-maximizing markets. The concept of ‘social enterprise’ is examined, with ways that communities, and not just individuals, develop their economies with goals of community benefit and social justice as well as material improvement. ‘The economy’ is treated as a landscape of different practices that may be obscured by concentrating just on market transactions.
