Is Buying Local Considered Protectionist?

Innovation

Wasn’t considered consumption and buying locally going to make things better? If you are trying to be eco-conscious these days you probably feel a bit guilty. After waiving the ‘buy less, buy better’ flag for a while they were told that the drop in consumer demand is killing the world’s economy. Now their efforts to buy local could be seen as protectionist and anti-competitive.

It could just be me, but there seems to be a lot of old world thinking in politics about how to solve the economic crisis going against many of the principles of an emerging way of thinking about our role with the planet.

Would love some thoughts from you guys in the comments.
