Sacred Economics: Money, Gifts, and Society in the Age of Transition with Charles Eisenstein
It is often said that, “money is the root of all evil.” According to speaker and author, Charles Eisenstein, Money was never meant to be what it has become today. In his book, Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition, Eisenstein 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, Eisenstein says, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
*The history and corruption of “money”
*How our money system will have to change—and is already changing—to embody this transition.
*The New Economics—negative-interest currencies, local currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies, and the restoration of the commons
*How those concerned with “right livelihood” can live according to their ideals in a world seemingly ruled by money
*What you can do to help create a new vision for a new future and make the world a better place
