Sacred Economics 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.

This book is about how the money system will have to change—and is already changing—to 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.

The print version is available on Amazon or from the publisher directly. Other on-line booksellers carry it as well, such as Indiebound. You can also get the eBook from the publisher here. Books.

John le Carré: The author's official website: A Delicate Truth. A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britain’s most precious colony, Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend. Kit Probyn, Foreign Office veteran with a safe pair of hands and no previous experience of the dark arts, is to be the Minister’s eyes and ears on the ground. His “red telephone”. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister’s personal private secretary, Toby Bell, has been kept out of the loop. Three years on, summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely watched by Probyn’s daughter Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service.

At the close of the twentieth century, corporate capitalism extended its reach over the globe. While its defenders argue that globalization is the only way forward for modern, democratic societies, the spread of this system is failing to meet even the most basic needs of billions of individuals around the world.

Humanizing the Economy shows how co-operative models for economicand social development can create a more equitable, just, and humane future. With over 800 million members in 85 countries and a long history linking economics to social values, the co-operative movement is the most powerfulgrassroots movement in the world.

Jan Reedijk, die in het tweede deel van de Rijnlandreeks een heldere en leesbare Nederlandstalige samenvatting heeft gemaakt van dit historische werk, haalt de woorden van de Fransman nog maar eens aan. Kiezen we voor het op sociaal en economisch gebied beter scorende Rijnlandse model, of laten we het gebeuren dat het Angelsaksische model steeds meer terrein wint? Het ebook van Jan Reedijk werd op 11 juli tijdens de netwerkbijeenkomst van DeLimes die traditioneel de Rijnlandweek afsluit, ten doop gehouden.

The Observation, Inquiry, and Measurement Challenges Surfaced by Complexity Theory by Eric B. Dent.

Fayetteville State University; University of Maryland University College - Graduate School of Management and TechnologyOctober 4, 2013 Managing the Complex: Philosophy, Theory and Practice. 253-283, Forthcoming Abstract: One of the contributions of the work in complexity theory is its demonstration that traditional science has not done an adequate job of establishing effective processes for observation, inquiry, and measurement. The domain of interesting organizational phenomena that can be adequately addressed by arms-length, objective measurement has been relatively exhausted. An exploration of most topics of appeal, such as strategy, innovation, leadership, communication, and so forth has been stunted by an inadequate depiction of how they operate.
