Film: Money and Life, Tues, March 4


Transition Putney & Putney Library Present Film: MONEY & LIFE, Tues, March 4, 7- 9 p.m, at Putney Library
(Short discussion following the film.)

-What is real wealth?
-How can money serve people, rather than vice versa?
-What does it really mean to “make a living”, and how can we free ourselves from cycles of debt and consumption?
-How can we align our financial choices with our most deeply held values?
-What are the possibilities – and examples – of alternative monetary systems and currencies?

Money & Life reminds us that as the creators of money, “we made it all up” in the first place, and we can recreate it as well. We are invited to own our role as creator and envision new possibilities such as alternative economic systems, complimentary currencies, and sustainable financial solutions (as is already happening on micro-levels around the world.)

Featured in the film: John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, Lynne Twist of the Soul of Money Institute, Jacob Needleman, author of Money and the Meaning of Life, Vicki Robin, co-author of Your Money or Your Life, Bernard Lietaur, author of The Future of Money, Hazel Henderson, author of Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy, and Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics.
A Film Series: Economics, Money, & Our Community

An alternative is needed

The only way to overcome the hoarding of money by a handful of people on the planet is to create an alternate form of currency that we all have and they don't. Using an alternative would take away our reliance on the dollar for determination of our worth to society.

As long as we recognize the dollar as being the standard, we give value to those who have all of them.
