A local economy is about business owners living and spending in the MarketTown, not a franchise, chain or licensed business where money is exported.

To thrive, about 20% of the MarketTown businesses should be money importers, meaning they sell local to global (L2G). These are businesses that thrive anywhere there is high-speed broadband and access to an airport for the occasional face-to-face meeting.

The money these L2G businesses imports is then spent by the owners and employees on businesses that sell local to local (L2L).

For this reason MarketTown marketing focuses not on selling homes, but on attracting head-of-household jobs.

Below is a partial list of businesses and jobs that would be part of the L2L economy. In addition to these jobs, the MarketTown will have artists, musicians and other members of the creative class.
