In direct response to the interest and questions raised by readers of the Moneyless Man, in which Mark Boyle tells of his first year of operating completely without spending, earning, saving or using money, the Moneyless Manifesto develops on the themes of Boyle's first book in order to look deeper in to the culture of modern economics, and provide a how-to on the logistics of going moneyless, or at least reducing dependency on money. Thought provoking in the first instance, readers will also find it incredibly practical and useful. At first, an in-depth exploration of the philosophy and theory behind moneyless living; combining deep ecology with economics to portray what Boyle believes to be radically new perspectives on some of the vital - yet oft unquestioned - pillars of economic theory. Boyle then looks at the perceived obstacles to moneyless living - ranging from addiction to habits to access-to-land issues - and lays out a new map for navigating these roadblocks. The third phase of the book offers a menu of solutions for those wishing to go moneyless, or simply diversify their personal economy to make it more resilient to external shocks. Regardless of whether you live in the country or city, and depending on the level of technology you like to use, this portion of the book makes suggestions to address food, shelter, sex, labour and materials, transport, education, health and much more. The Moneyless Manifesto is complemented by contributions from many other well-known thinkers and doers in - co-originator of Permaculture David Holmgren, author of Sacred Economics Charles Eisenstein, forest gardening pioneer and author Martin Crawford, author of Wild Drugs Zoe Hawes, wild food forager Fergus Drennan plus many more.Über den Autor:
Mark Boyle became The Moneyless Man in November 2008 when he set out to try living completely without money for 12 months - not spending, earning, saving or using it. His first book The Moneyless Man: A Year of Freeconomic Living, was published in June 2010 by Oneworld Publications, and documents this journey. Having successfully completed the first year of moneyless living, Boyle has gone on to continue in this vein, still living moneylessly, and has been driven to write The Moneyless Manifesto to support, inform and encourage others who would like to explore this possibility. Boyle is the founder of the Freeconomy movement - which puts people with skills, tools and time in touch with those with a need for these things, without money changing hands - and attends to its blog at www.justfortheloveofit.org As a companion to The Moneyless Manifesto, Boyle and others have set up WEBSITE NAME in order to encourage readers to share their experiences about moneyless living, or moving away from dependence on current cultures around modern economy. Boyle currently lives near Bath, in South-west England.
