Spur asks in what conditions are local economies better at creating jobs and prosperity than transnational corporations? After a decades-long focus on globalization, and in a world where the nature of work has changed so dramatically, can a focus on building local resilience create positive change, both for individuals and for communities?

Renowned American thinker Michael Shuman proposes that governments should nurture a new generation of self-financing “pollinator businesses,” to create jobs and the conditions for future prosperity.
