What is “Worth?” – Brent Kakesako Discusses What It’s Worth
(By Brent Kakesako, Hawai’i Alliance for Community-Based Economic Development)
“What is productive agricultural land and clean water worth? What are strong communal relationships worth? What is a clear connection to heritage, to culture, to past, to future, and self, worth?
As I read CFED’s new book What It’s Worth, I asked myself those questions—questions that families across Hawai‘i continually ask us in our work as community practitioners. These are deep questions, and while these families understand the need to be financially capable and literate, they also push us to expand our definition of wealth and worth.”
