Within a generation, we envision a global system of human-scale, interconnected Local Living Economies that function in harmony with local ecosystems, meet the basic needs of all people, support just and democratic societies, and fosters joyful community life."

Part of a national organization founded in 2001, BALLE promotes sustainability by using a "chamber of commerce" strategy and appearance to promote “local production and consumption," via a network of conforming businesses willing to commit to preferred employment policies and "deep green" practices. The ideology of man-created climate change is a given, and it seeks a “post-carbon” world. The long term goal is to change America's economic, cultural, and social fabric toward post-capitalist global lateralism.
Key terminology: “triple bottom line” (profits, people, and planet); "true democracy."
Heavily influenced by anti-capitalist and global political theorists including David Korten (video), and Naomi Kline, author of “The Shock Doctrine” (video)
