Community-Based Economy

The Green Party is focused on creating a new economy where economic vitality, social wellbeing, and ecological wisdom are compatible, complementary, and necessary for our survival in California, in the nation, and in the world.

Our economic platform is founded on community-based economics, worker and community ownership and control, and need-based production, with public ownership of financial institutions, participatory planning and budgeting, and economic democracy.
The corporate parties legislate to maintain the status quo and to serve the special interests that control them. Greens reject an economy owned by an unaccountable government, private corporations, or the so-called free market. As long as the focus of our economy is on profit and corporate growth, we will not be able to protect ourselves and our resources.
