    1. “Mensen die zich duurzaamheid aantrekken (…) zijn geneigd zich over het geldsysteem niet al te veel zorgen te maken. Ze zoeken het voor oplossingen ook niet in monetaire innovaties.” Met deze woorden begint het boek ‘Geld en duurzaamheid’ van Bernard Lietaer (en anderen). En deze woorden zijn precies op mij van toepassing. Natuurlijk, geld en ‘de economie’ zijn belangrijk in deze wereld, maar toch vooral een middel, en zeker geen doel op zich. Daarom was ik ook erg benieuwd wat ‘ [...]


    2. One of the best books on the global economy written for laypeople. I logged one of the opening phrases in this book: "From the time of Aristotle who asserted that money exists "not by nature, but by law," money-creation and credit-allocation have been the essence of politics and power in societies. Kings and rulers controlled money-issuance most often to finance wars, conquest on foreign ventures and to maintain control over their populations."Lietaer and his co-authors delve into this history o [...]


    3. This report produced by a think tank starts out slow and pompous, but when it starts building up its main argument it's very convincing.They first show that the world is heading towards ecological disaster at a breakneck pace (I knew that :-( ). They then have an argument based on ecology and dynamic systems that claims that the monetary monoculture we have must be unstable because it is a monoculture; it seems quite strong, but came so far out of left field for me that I'm not sure I buy it 100 [...]


    4. a model textbook! Except for the confusing Dutch translations of English concepts (I've bought the Dutch edition). And don't (pay to) go to one of Lietaer's book presentations as he dissapoints (others agreed). Just read the book online for free: money-sustainability/r I've lost 22 euro's that I could and should have saved. But that's still cheap for the info.


    5. Thought-provoking and accessibly written report about the ways in which our money system poses a roadblock to achieving ecological sustainability. Lietaer argues for alternative currencies to exist alongside national and international ones, and he highlights an array of intriguing examples from NGOs, corporations, and governments. It is important to remember that money is ultimately a social construct and a mutually agreed-upon fiction. There is no reason that it must inherently take the form it [...]
