Earth Democracy is based on economic democracy.  Economic systems in Earth Democracy protect ecosystems and their integrity:  they protect people’s livelihoods and provide basic needs to all.  In the earth economy there are no disposable people or dispensable species or cultures.  The earth economy is a living economy.  It is based on sustainable, diverse, pluralistic systems that protect nature and  people, are chosen by people, and work for the common good.
