I've also joined few seminars like this, I would say it has similarities with this post but the biggest part I'd like to know is it's process and how it can be really helpful.

I imagine there is rather an elite group, none of the sizing of the individual Danish pastry representative.

In today’s increasingly mature market environment. This is because when a large enough body of investors / speculators get to know something, and then act on it. It's fair to say this is exactly what condition our condition is in , fuelled by runaway money supply growth also characteristic of high degree market tops that can take many years to fully mature.

As my point of view, history may not repeat exactly when it comes to the financial markets because at the extreme technological advancement can make the current population to think that they have beat Mother Nature; in spite of this, human beings remain as frail emotionally today as the generations before them, setting the stage for historical repetition.

Great questions. I'm familiar with CSAs here in San Francisco where they are quite popular. I don't know how broad the movement is across north america, though I think there are quite a few, none of the size of the single Danish example.

Size is an interesting question for CSAs, seems to me.

The big box issue and real price of food are exactly what we need to be thinking about. Bill McKibben's Deep Economy is the best book I've read on this, with some mindblowing stats about food - such as the note that Philip Morris/Nabisco, which merged in 2000, collects 10 cents of every dollar American consumers spend on food (p 53).

I think the idea of local investors circles, perhaps built around CSAs, as I think you are suggesting is interesting. This might be what some of the local currency movements are about, or even the Interra card - which is creating a local merchants reward program. There are lots of ideas - not sure where the best place is to track them all - does anyone know?

Hi Lucy,
Just a comment on the part about CSA's (Community Supported Agriculture) - Several of these organizations are cropping up around North America. In fact, where I live (Calgary, Alberta) the education system is starting to integrate food sourcing as part of the elementary curriculum (I am not sure about higher levels). I believe Hazon (a NYC organization combating hunger) also has a partnership with a CSA in upstate in NY.

There's a book written by a couple who live in Vancouver, BC called the Hundred Mile Diet - http://www.100milediet.org that discusses not only sourcing food, but the that impact of our current lifestyle is having on our planet. It's an interesting read.

As we integrate CSA's into the Investor Circle model I wonder what role the big box stores (like Walmart) will do in response? I pose this question because of the current economics (we haven't paid the real cost of food in decades and these stores undercut things further). I wonder if there is a way to integrate a broader business model that will attact consumers to shop locally and invest in CSA's (or other forms of investor circles that have social benefits)?
