‘Sacred Economics’ is about how the money system will have to change – and is already changing – to embody the transition towards building sustainable communities. A broadly integrated synthesis of theory, policy, and practice, the book explores forward-thinking concepts of New Economics, including negative-interest currencies, local currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies, and the restoration of the commons.

Charles is the author of a number of books, including: ‘Sacred Economics’, ‘The More Beautiful World our Hearts Know is Possible’ and ‘The Ascent of Humanity.’ He graduated from Yale University in 1989 with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy and spent the next ten years as a Chinese–English translator. He currently lives in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.

“I consider Charles Eisenstein one of the up-and-coming great minds of our time. Rarely have I met a person who combines such philosophical and spiritual depth with such practical insights into the cultural and institutional origins of the potentially terminal dysfunctions of modern society – and the potential solutions.” ~ David Korten, author of ‘The Great Turning’

“We sense that ‘normal’ isn’t coming back, that we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human.” ~ Charles Eisenstein
