We are living in extraordinary times. Economic “growth” -- particularly as we have known it for the past 30 to 80 years -- is history. With constrained energy supplies, the weird weather of climate change, and the wild ride of economic contraction, the new future is going to be very different. Resilience means building up our “bounce-back-ability” – putting in place the local resources and social interconnections that will help us flex and adapt with whatever the future throws our way.

Here are 10 Practical Tools available to grassroots Americans. These are your survival kit for what lies ahead. What's more, these 10 Practical Tools work together -- like interlocking puzzle pieces -- to form the foundation of a new, more fulfilling and sustainable economy. It's time to start building your economic toolkit -- today!
