For The Sake Of Another

Today, local economies are being destroyed by the "pluralistic," displaced, global economy, which has no respect for what works in a locality.  The global economy is built on the principle that one place can be exploited, even destroyed, for the sake of another place.

-- Wendell Berry (1934-), American philosopher, poet, farmer, and social activist, Interview in New Perspectives Quarterly (1992), quoted in his profile at The Poetry Foundation
