Our Book Group is discussing Charles Eisenstein’s Sacred Economics. We are over the moon about this book–so much so that Marie managed to convince Charles to come to Media to present an all day seminar on May 26! Better mark your calendars now–you will definitely not want to miss this amazing speaker.
What’s being said about the book:
“This brilliant and beautifully written book is a must read for all those who believe our economic system is terminally sick and in need of radical rehaul.” — Andrew Harvey
“I consider Charles Eisenstein one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time. ” —David Korten
“Brilliant and original,with great depth of insight and understanding…”
—Joseph Chilton Pearce
Here’s an excerpt…
“…before the collapse of the current (money) system, anything we do to protect some natural or social resource from conversion into money will both hasten and mitigate its severity. Any forest you save from development, any road you stop, any cooperative playgroup you establish; anyone you teach to heal themselves, or to build their own house, cook their own food, or make their own clothes; any wealth you create or add to the public domain; anything you render off-limits to the world-devouring Machine will shorten the Machine’s lifespan.”
If that sounds too radical to you, read the book and it will make perfect sense. The book is available at the Media library.
