Short Video in which the author Charles Eisenstein explains his concept of ‘Sacred Economics’. Topics in the video are: Money, what it is, what it does and where it comes from, alienation and community, gift economy, some growth critique and more.

About the Book “Sacred Economics”, from the book’s webpage: 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.
