"Sustainable Community Development"

Is this my field?

Heard it described as Gwendolyn Hallsmith's shtick here.

Wiki has entries for community development and for sustainable development.

Where can liberals and conservatives agree? Local currencies, organic ag, sustainable (resilient) communities, etc. AND, how to make sure the "poor and disenfranchised" don't become serf communities adjacent to or within better-off communities?

And more on local currencies, since that's what the podcast's about:

"The things that complementary currencies do best is connecting underutilized resources with unmnet needs [e.g. people who want to work but don't have work, theatres that have seats to offer but aren't selling all their tickets, etc.]"
