Freegans – Creative Living Outside of Capitalism

In this episode of Subculture Club we meet a few Freegans in New York City and learn about their strategies for practical living. We explore why they take limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. According to them: “Freeganism is creative living outside of capitalism. Free from the oppression of the wage slave economy, and free in that you’re not paying for things, not participating in a moneyed economy.”

The Little Money Bible, by Stuart Wilde

Here’s a short review of The Little Money Bible by Stuart Wilde. A small book with some big ideas about how to balance spirituality and material success. According to Wilde: “Moneymaking is not a serious business; it’s a game. At first it may seem that it’s a game that you play with forces outside yourself—the economies of the marketplace, so to speak. But as you proceed, you discover that it’s actually a game you play with yourself!”

Stuart Wilde has another excellent book on this subject called The Trick to Money Is Having Some.

The Secret of Oz – Everything You Never Knew About Money

It is well known in economics academia that The Wonderful Wizard of Oz written by L. Frank Baum in 1900 is loaded with powerful symbols of monetary reform.

We believe Baum’s symbols represent the only solution to relieve the growing economic hardship here in America – and the rest of the world.
