Award-winning journalist Laura Flanders has just released a half hour documentary called “Community Wealth Building: An Economic Reset.” The film traces the evolution of Community Wealth Building from its origins in Cleveland Ohio with the Evergreen Cooperatives to the “Preston Model” in England, and on to North Ayrshire in Scotland where the city council has initiated a comprehensive CWB strategy. The Scotland government has also appointed the world’s first Minister for Community Wealth. The program is now airing on more than 300 PBS stations across the US, with a potential viewing audience of more than 225 million.
