Most of us know that our current economy does not play in our favor…When we choose to monetize all facets of society we disintegrate community and starve ourselves of our basic emotional and spiritual needs through the commodification of our values. So why do we keep fueling an economic system of domination, deception, and separation when very few of us would be brazen enough to proclaim that we are supported by it?

In this week’s conversation, Charles Eisenstein and Ian MacKenzie join Ayana to discuss what features are inherently built into this money system, how economics does not have to be a merciless system, the importance of universal basic income, what it looks like to step into gift giving, and how we can hold healthy boundaries in the process.
