Sacred Economics by Charles Eisenstein 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.

True to the gift economy, the book is offered on a "pay what you want" basis, as well as hard copy. http://sacred-economics.com/read-online/
