Professional Blogs

I author an academic, economics-oriented blog for Triple Crisis, a joint project of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI), University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Tufts University's Global Development and Environment Institute; and the Economic Research Foundation (New Delhi).

I coauthor a professional blog entitled Finding Rootedness, with John Cavanagh, for YES! Magazine. Topics relate to fieldwork in – and analyses of – spaces where people are finding ways to counter economic, social, and environmental “vulnerability” and are creating more secure paths of living based on a concept I coined called "rootedness.” The individual blogs have been widely reprinted, re-posted, and circulated on the internet on such websites as Common Dreams and Progressive Radio Network. Several have been translated into Dutch.
