I am searching for a nice book about money and currency design to deep dive into the core concept of Mutual-Credit-Accounting and the future of economy and money in our societies. I found this book.

The End of Money and the Future of Civilization (Thomas H. Greco)

Is there anybody who read this book? Any recommendation?

Maybe @artbrock can help for finding the best sources about this topic.

Walkaway, by Cory Doctorow. I read it a few weeks ago on @zippy’s recommendation and loved it a ton. I discussed it with @maackle the other day and he said it was one of the reasons he went to the Holochain internship over a year ago.

I really recommend the book: Climate, a New Story
It’s a good re-calibrating of our thinking around climate and biosphere health. It’s published freely here or can be bought wherever.

I’ll go with Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder:

To me, is one of those books that permanently change the way you look at your surroundings (in the broadest sense)

I also liked his book “The Bed of Procrustes”, which is a book of aphorisms related to his Incerto Collection.

thanks for this recommendation, on my reading list! I know charles eisenstein just from talks and videos but really like his approach of “changing the story”. This reminds me a lot of what Harari covered in his book “sapiens”, saying we are constructing most of our collecive reality (nationaities, government, money, economic “laws”) :slight_smile:

I want to bump this one from Hedayat. It’s one of my favorites, and it’s been very influential for Art and Eric HB, and many other folks on the team.

It is a great book. Very practical with all the theoretical foundations explained clearly.
