Sacred Economics: A Post Money World?

Author and lecturer Charles Eisenstein speaks to Earth Focus about his new book Sacred Economics: Money, Gift and Society in the Age of Transition. He traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism revealing how the money system contributed to alienation, competition and scarcity destroying community and necessitating endless growth. Eisenstein says today these trends have reached their extreme but in wake of their collapse we may find great opportunities to transition to a more connected, ecological and stainable way of being.
