New Age Business takes us on a journey from Cape Breton to Eastern Quebec and the Basque country of Northern Spain, areas that have all suffered from underdevelopment and responded by forming new structures for economic growth.
The common objective in these regions is community improvement through the use of modern business methods. These are not one-shot, make-work efforts; they are long-term development strategies. The desire is to be autonomous and self-sustaining and, most of all, to promote local self-help based upon the history and traditions of particular groups of people.
First published in 1986, New Age Business is a pioneering exploration of the economic model known as the "community development corporation."

"Here is community economic development described by one of the outstanding community leaders of North America. Greg MacLeod spells out the alternative to the elitist and authoritarian economic policies that threaten social democracies on both sides of the Atlantic. In this highly readable account of the how and why of community- based economic development, illustrated by three detailed case studies of it in action, we have both the practical knowledge and the inspiration needed to create sustainable, self- reliant communities."

- George McRobie Author of Small is Possible
