Book of the Day: Life Without Money

Unfortunately, a free copy of this book is not available. (I could not even obtain excerpts from the author)

* Book: Life Without Money; Building Fair and Sustainable Economies. Co-edited by Anitra Nelson and Frans Timmerman.

Stefan Meretz writes:

“The ten contributors to Life Without Money argue that we need to dispense with monetary values and relationships — yes, money per se — in order to manage our world on the basis of humane and natural values.

The book brings together diverse voices with strong arguments against our money-based system’s ability to improve lives and prevent environmental disaster. It provides a strategy for undercutting capitalism by refusing to deal in money, and offers money-free models of governance and collective sufficiency. Life Without Money is written by high-profile activist scholars, including Harry Cleaver, Ariel Salleh and John O’Neill, and is an inspiring manifesto for those who want to take action.

However, the book cannot be obtained »without money«, it has to be purchased in a bookstore. And the website indicates, that strict copyright applies.”

    Did you notice (from the pingbacks at the article site) that this was the book of the day on 16 January of 2012 as well?

    Hi Michael — I can’t remember you ever approaching us to obtain excerpts. I might have referred you to articles, reviews and interviews, many of which are available through our website — You could always order it through your local library and access it free. It has recently been released in a cheaper eBook version too. Cheers, Anitra.
