J. K. Gibson-Graham is the pen name of Katherine Gibson and the late Julie Graham, feminist political economists and economic geographers based at the University of Western Sydney, Australia, and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
"Take Back the Economy is a valuable, engaged accessible and very clear addition to the Community Economics Collective oeuvre, and I hope it will be read widely and--more importantly--change the world."-Antipode "Readable, practical, radical."-Sociology "A most exquisitely conducted study into the not-for-profit or other side of organisations. It impressively shows that `another world' is not only possible but already here."-Organization "Beneficial for the use of individuals looking to alter their environmental or economic impact, students interested in administration or economics, or researchers and planners seeking alternatives for their communities."-Journal of Appalachian Studies "Take Back the Economy is the single most farsighted and practical work enlightening us on the path to a steady transition toward a genuine postcapitalist world. It is based on the presupposition that reorienting the economy means much more than the control of production-it means reinventing ourselves, our communities, and our world in profound ways. Out of this act of `reframing' there emerges a novel understanding of work, enterprise, market, property, even finance. In this wonderful new work in the tradition of Gibson-Graham, students, activists, movements, and communities will find a toolkit for ethical and effective action any time, any place."-Arturo Escobar, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
