This month's briefing paper focuses on the concept of buen vivir, "living well."

It strives to achieve balance and harmony through social community and congruous relationships among all living things. Read "Buen Virir: Redefining Wealth and Happiness" to learn more about the concept and the need for U.S. society to make use of it.
