Money and Life: Ecologizing Growth

Optimism is a strategy for making a better future. Because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so. — Noam Chomsky

Inspiration of the Day:
The words economy and ecology share the same root — the Greek word meaning household. Could a change in how we view economic systems create a change in how we view ourselves? Ecologize Growth is a five-minute video based on the documentary ‘Money and Life’, and seeks to answer that question. This micro-film is a challenge to the commonly accepted infinite growth paradigm of the modern economy. It brings in the voices of several luminaries — Jean Houston, Brother David Steindl-Rast, Lynne Twist — who explore old and new perspectives and belief systems about money and how all of these can affect society’s shared well-being, co-creative potential and evolving consciousness.

Be The Change:
“Our common future depends on creating a democratically accountable money system that operates as our servant, not our master.” David Korten in this short reading called ‘The Flow of Money.’
