Sacred Economics traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation. Sacred Economics Sermon. Preached September 25th, By Rev. Caitlin S. Cotter. Money means a lot of different things to different people at different. „Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition”, by Charles Eisenstein,. , published by Evolver Editions, distributed by North Atlantic.
The notion of internalizing of costs will here be approached by first considering its opposite, namely the externalizing of costs. Since producers are not liable to pay the current and future costs of aquifer depletion, pesticide poisoning, soil salinization, and other effects of their farming methods, these costs do not contribute to the price of a head of lettuce.
Moreover, the cost of trucking produce across the continent is also highly subsidized. If all these costs were embodied in a head of lettuce, California lettuce would be prohibitively expensive in Pennsylvania. We would buy only very special things from faraway places.
Ibid This illustration refers to numerous ecological issues that were explored previously in this study — water issues, soil issues, pesticide poisoning, pollution, and transport systems. Eisenstein is accordingly a harsh critic of the dominant debt-based fiscal monetary system, and spends the first section of his book exploring various problematic features thereof.
Eisenstein describes the obvious alternative to externalizing costs: the internalization of costs. Thus nature, which we read at this end, may be defined as the integral of all ecosystems. In the example above of the Californian lettuce in Pennsylvania, application of the internalization of costs principle would quite simply mean that one would eat local organic lettuce rather than the one trucked in from afar.
In the debt-based money system, this may mean initially paying more for the local organic lettuce. However, Eisenstein states in Sacred Economics that the debt-based Promethean monetary system is reaching its end  , and offers numerous alternative means of economic interaction.

But if you skip over such lapses, Eisenstein has a number of practical policy recommendations for the way down, based on solid readings in several fields. This also prevents inflation in a contracting economy and provides an incentive to postpone exploiting resources that will be more valuable in the future, such as depleting fossil fuels and minerals.
Eisenstein wisely suggests a fully transparent and traceable digital currency that would automatically decay in value according to this negative interest rate. Other authors and progressive politicians suggest that it will be an easy transition to a sustainable economy if we just replace fossil fuels by renewable energy.
Everyone needs to read this book!!! This book is blowing my mind!!! I've always wanted to more deeply understand our money system, that so profoundly affects us all. The author is a genius not just because his name is Eisenstein , and he explains our economy and its relationship to society with such breadth and depth of understanding and wisdom that I literally can't believe how good it is.
A rare gem!!! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I've read many books on money over the years, while most contain great ideas and insights, few have truly changed me.
This is one that has. While I'm still processing much of what is in Sacred Economics, the spirit of the gift that underlies its message has left me feeling less more grateful, more generous, more connected, and more safe. To me, this is priceless, and I suppose it's what I've been seeking all along through accumulating my own degree of wealth, which has been unable to satisfy in these ways. So, thank you Charles for sharing your gift with us.
One person found this helpful. Be Prepared to Think. This book addresses the key dysfunctions in the grandaddy of all social systems - the one that trumps all other systems and dominates our culture - the economic system. The author makes a convincing case for how much we trust our economic system and how it is in the final stages of imploding on itself and wreaking havoc with so many people who rely so heavily on it.
Sobering to read but read it anyway! There are answers here that can save lots of needless suffering but it will take the rigor to understand the beast that occupies us in order for us to transcend it and build a new more sustainable economic system.
A must read for any thinking person who cares about the future our kids and grand kids will inherit. There is a growing concern about where we as a human society are headed, what we are doing to the planet and in relation to those two points what type of future we can expect.
Eisenstein directly addresses these concerns and offers a compelling new direction.
He doesn't preach or prophesies his ideas, he simply makes a suggestion. The basis of these suggestions is heavily entrenched in economic and monetary policies, however, they take on a much more all encompassing perspective than the current economic and monetary policies implemented by countries today. He also directly addresses the very rational skepticism of his ideas and ultimately comes forth with a vision for our world that is as solid as anything I can imagine.
For a synopsis of the major points in the book check out the book's website and watch the video. It does a better job explaining his thought process than I could in this review.
I'll conclude by saying I can't help but recommend this book to others, it seems incredibly relevant in the context of many conversations I have daily. I truly hope that these ideas take root and come to fruition.

I think that Walsh is correct that religious exchange processes are complex, and involve transactions that economists have rarely studied. The monastery gained a revenue stream with which to generate more?
