Poole Accounts is a collection of resources by Kate Poole focusing on radical economics and the new economy. Kate has worked with authors and organizations, from Michael Shuman to Schumacher Center for New Economics to BALLE, creating accessible, concrete resources for folks developing and growing their own local economies. She’s also working with Regenerative Finance to develop a radical non-extractive investment fund.
Right now, Kate is most excited about creating comics depicting the next economy, including a pragmatic local investing guide, illustrations of compelling lectures, and short zines exploring questions of privilege. Check our her comics on co-op equity as local investment, the impossibility of values neutral economic behavior, and the paradox of “bootstrapping” in privileged communities. And this comic explaining why she makes comics about economics.
