Topic: The Costs of Buying Locally
Why start your own business and market a Maine product? What are the direct costs are that are associated with buying locally? What are some of the “costs” associated with inexpensive foods or products (that are not local)? How does this all connect with the thought that if you use $1 locally it rolls over 7 times in the local economy?
