What Shall We Call The New Economy We Need So Much?

Seventy Names












This is an expanded Appendix 1 to my essay A New Cooperative Economy.

Until something has a name, it hardly exists. So what shall we call the new economy that we need so much? These are all proposed names that I have harvested from my reading. If you know of another, let me know, and I will add it. Updated from 66 to 70 on June 5th, thanks to Nicole Chaland.
