Charles Eisenstein talks about the fundamental failure of our interest-bearing money system and the transition we must go through with what he sees as the impending collapse of our currency. "Usury-money is the money of growth, and it was perfect for humanity's growth stage on earth, and for the story of ascent, of dominance and mastery. The next stage is one of cocreative partnership with earth. The Story of the People for this new stage is coming together right now. . .No financial or economic reform can possibly work that does not include a new kind of money. The new money must embody a new story, one that treats nature not as a mother but as a lover." Charles authored The Ascent of Humanity which can be read on his website, and writes for the online magazine Reality Sandwich. He is also on the faculty of the Health Arts and Sciences program at Goddard College. Hosted by Stephanie Potter
