Shannon Biggs of Global Exchange explains that nowadays there are factory towns where the entire job market is related to corporations. Even though those factories are responsible for local contamination, communities struggle to prevent their activities as they boost the economy. She suggests that the green economy can help us find a balance as it follows the example set by the Indigenous peoples who have maintained a balanced relationship with the Land. Accordingly, we should shift the narrative and the main question should not be how we can fit Nature in Economics but how we listen to the Earth and what she has to offer us.
