Contents Alternative economies and spaces: introductory remarks / Sebastian Hillebrand and Hans-Martin Zademach -- Interrogating alternative local and regional economies: the British credit union movement and post-binary thinking / Andrew E.G. Jonas -- The alternative economy at the regional scale? Lessons from the Chiemgau / Peter North and Katinka Weber -- The possibilities of economic difference? Social relations of value, space and economic geographies / Roger Lee -- Placing the practices of alternative economic geographies: alternative retail, the spaces of intention and ethical ambiguities / Michael K. Goodman and Raymond Bryant -- Social enterprise, social innovation and alternative economies: insights from fair trade and renewable energy / Benjamin Huybrechts.
Summary The volume entails a collection of contributions by leading scholars (Raymond Bryant, Michael K. Goodman, Benjamin Huybrechts, Andrew E.G. Jonas, Roger Lee, Peter North, and Katinka Weber) concerned with alternative modes of economic and social exchange. The cases addressed in these contributions - including credit unions, alternative currencies, sustainable consumption, and social enterprises - deliver valuable insights into how such alternatives are performed at various scales and spaces in relation to and beyond the economic mainstream. In sum, the collection provides vital grounds for both a transition of the economic system towards a more sustainable one, and a reconceptualisation of the economic itself in our scholarly thinking and everyday lives.
