BENEFITING: PEACE AND JUSTICE CENTER IN
The Peace and Justice Center (PJC) has made significant progress in its work with the Job Gap Study, and is currently researching and writing the next part of Phase 10. Phase 10 Part 2 will be an update to the Leaky Bucket, which analyzes Vermont’s dependency on imports. This analysis gives us the opportunity to explore our reliance on outside goods, services and capital, and to determine how we can utilize our natural resources to minimize this. The value of the information provided by this Study is immeasurable. As we become more aware of our dependency on imports, we can further promote the benefits of a locally based economy, which benefits Vermont’s farms and businesses.
