    Through encouraging investment and reinvestment rather then hedonistic consumption. Economies depend on the flow of money from one person or institution to another. This flow can be maintained through having people invest money in community projects and or green industries.

    We can encourage responsible and conservative consumption (less waste), while stimulating the economy in other ways.  If we support the development of innovations domestically, for instance, we can gain a competitive edge over foreign markets.  If we have exclusive access to technologies desired by other countries, we can use trade to alleviate our import-export imbalance and pay off our national debt.  Additionally, stimulating domestic production creates jobs, lowering unemployment and raising incomes.
