A North American Reader in Community Economic Development (CED) and the Social Economy

This reader is an early project of the BC-Alberta Social Economy Research Alliance (BALTA). Sharing key readings relevant to BALTA's central research questions was viewed as an efficient way of building a common language and understanding of the social economy. While an immediate goal of the Reader is to provide a resource to those associated with BALTA, this reader should be of broad relevance to anyone with an interest in community economic development and the social economy.

The Reader was edited by Mike Lewis, Lead Investigator and Director of BALTA. Many of the readings were first published in Canada's premier community economic development magazine, Making Waves.
