A few colleagues and I are working on cracking the Ecosynomics of money. What is money, from a scientific, abundance-based perspective? What money agreements would Ecosynomics suggest? What are we learning from high vibrancy groups working with money agreements? That is our exploration. We will be sharing what we are seeing over the next months.
Building on our earlier exploration of money agreements and dynamics, I have been reading a wide variety of perspectives on money, from different social sciences. For a broad bibliography on money from my earlier readings, click here, and for a movie on money that brings many thought leaders together, click here for a conventional view and here for an unconventional view. From my recent readings, here is an initial list I highly recommend (with links to the book on Amazon.com and GoogleBooks).
- The Nature of Money 2004 by Geoffrey Ingham. A Cambridge U sociologist scans the sociological and political history of insights into money. Amazon Google
- Money: Master the Game 2014 by Tony Robbins. The best-selling author highlights how 50 legendary financial experts alive today think about money. Amazon Google
- Debt: The First 5,000 Years 2011 by David Graeber. A cultural anthropologist synthesizes the vast field of ethnographic field research on money and credit systems. Amazon Google
I am looking for a wide variety of perspectives on what money is. From economics, political science, cultural anthropology, sociology, and philosophy and any other perspective you can think of. Are there any well written reflections on money that you would recommend?
