Community-based economicsW or just community economics encourages local substitution and a rejection of outside energy subsidyW and coercion. It is most familiar from the lifeways of those practicing voluntary simplicityW, including traditional MennoniteW, AmishW, and modern eco-villageW communities.

However, it is also increasingly a priority in urban economicsW, where moral purchasingW and local purchasingW are increasingly cogent concerns.

Various specific programs for community economics and local currencyW are often promoted in green politicsW. Notably, the Ten Key Values of the Green PartyW include them as fundamental parts of a green program.
