How could the Slow Money movement help local food economies?

On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the Slow Money movement, which aims to connect small farmers and food entrepreneurs with investors. How promising is this economic model? And who is benefiting? Join us live at 10 or send an email to feedback@yourcallradio.org. What's in store for the future of Slow Money both on a national level and regionally? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

I just heard a caller ask if he could invest in Slow Money with his retirement fund and I heard an amazing non-answer full of financial gobbledygook in reply.

The question about retirement cut right to the heart of the issue - why would I ever choose to make less money when that money affects my well-being for the rest of my life? And the answer, albeit long-winded, answered with the Slow Money philosophy: You take a cut in money, but your community thrives. Is community not part of human well-being?
