5. Earth Democracy is based on living economies and economic democracy – By Vandana Shiva – Earth Democracy
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.
