The title of the book itself intrigued me, economics and sacred? The two seemed to be mutually exclusive to me. Living in an economics driven, money dominated, standardized world what one acutely experiences is the absence of the ‘sacred’! Charles Eisenstein’s beautifully written book is a must read, for all those who believe that our economic system is terminally sick and in dire need of a re-haul. He traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism and calls for a transition from profanity to sacredness in money. He describes a vision of a money system and an economy that is sacred and embodies the inter-connectedness and uniqueness of all things.
