Sacred Economics: Money is a Societal Construct with No Inherent Meaning

Sacred Economics

My sustainable economics reading group recently finished Charles Eisenstein’s seminal book, “Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition“.  Everyone should read this amazing book. The text is very accessible, engrossing and compelling; the concepts that it raises may radically change how you perceive the concept of money, community, scarcity, the world that we live in, and your own personal identity.

Sacred Economics explores the economic transformation that our world is undergoing, and analyzes the inevitable transition from a collapsing monetary economy to a more sustainable system based upon sharing, giving and abundance.

In order to be able to spread this important information as widely as possible, the entire volume has been made available for free online. Velcrow Ripper, Gregg Hill and Ian MacKenzie have created this short documentary film to help explain the basic fundamentals of Eisentien’s work.

 

“Money is an agreement. Y’know it doesn’t have value all by itself. It has value because people agree that it has value.”

—Charles Eisenstein
