Devotion is an economic and political advocacy group based on the theory of Humanity-Based Economics.

Humanity-Based Economics requires that institutions strive to do “good,” and to do no harm, in pursuit of profits. The objective is to encourage economic and business practices that put the wellbeing of human beings and the living earth first.

True economic development and prosperity are generated when corporations, governments and other large institutions do business with local small business communities. The creation of these business relationships generate a “multiplier effect.” Small businesses contracting and providing needed services to corporate, government and institutional partners grows small business, creates jobs, increases incomes and feeds families. This multiplier effect has proven to drastically decrease unemployment, housing insecurity and poverty in communities.

The Humanity-Based Economics Rubric is used to evaluate institutions based upon research on their business practices. Data determines whether or not institutions are acting as productive and responsible members of local communities. Devotion helps institutions create relationships with local small business communities.
