This book is about how the money system will have to changeand is already changingto embody this transition. A broadly integrated synthesis of theory, policy, and practice,Sacred Economics explores avant-garde concepts of the New Economics, including negative-interest currencies, local currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies, and the restoration of the commons.
