Shareable: Sacred Economics with Charles Eisenstein [Interview] | Conscious Travel | Scoop.it

Charles Eisenstein is the author of two of my all time favorite books, the Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics. He graduated from Yale with a degree in Philosophy and Mathematics and now teaches at Goddard College. He is a well known speaker on the topics of culture, spirituality, economics, gifting, the money system and community currencies.

Uneconomics: a challenge to the power of the economics profession

Uneconomics: a challenge to the power of the economics profession | Conscious Travel | Scoop.it

"It is time to acknowledge an uncomfortable truth about the public status of economics as an expert discipline: it has grown to be far more powerful as a tool of political rhetoric, blame avoidance and elite strategy than for the empirical representation of economic life. This is damaging to politics, for it enables value judgements and political agendas to be endlessly presented in ‘factual’ terms. But it is equally damaging to economics, which is losing the authority to describe reality in a credible, disinterested, Enlightenment fashion."

 

Brilliant analysis in Open Democracy on the perverse power of economic technocrats on our democratic institutions.
