Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme – but in the wake of their collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
You can get the book here for free – the author’s offering to the gift economy. If we are looking for something that will save us all, which I think we are either consciously or unconsciously, this could be it.
I really love this guy’s message.
