Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Associative Economics is a term used variously by different people around the world. For some of these the work of Austrian philosopher and social thinker Rudolf Steiner is a key reference. Steiner gave a course of lectures in 1922 in which he set out his view that with the advent of global economy, the science of economics would need to take a further step, which included an elaboration of the economic process, a more precise monetary analysis, and a clearer understanding of how, through the division of labour, the associative basis of economic life becomes apparent. Associative Economics emphasizes the development of conscious coordination of producers, distributors, and consumers. It understands the global economy as a single, closed domain, through which human beings meet one another's needs. The idea of associative economics is also interpreted by some people with reference to community supported agriculture, ethical banking, social finance, community land trusts, and local currencies.
