Expanded and updated, Charles Eisenstein’s classic treatise on capitalism, currency, and the gift economy.

This revised version traces the history of money, from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, and includes new material on cryptocurrencies and emerging research that has come out since the book’s original publication. Charles
Eisenstein shows how capitalism contributes to alienation, competition, and scarcity; destroys community; and necessitates endless growth at the cost of social and environmental devastation. Today, these trends have reached their extreme—and their collapse presents a golden opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Eisenstein describes the deeper narratives beneath our economic system, and how we can reimagine it to align with a new story. Applying a broadly integrated synthesis of theory, policy, and practice, he explores avant-garde concepts of the New Economics, including negative-interest currencies, local economies, gift economics, cryptocurrencies, and the restoration of the commons. Tapping into a rich lineage of conventional and unconventional economic thought, Eisenstein presents a vision that is original yet commonsense, radical yet gentle, and increasingly relevant as the crises of our civilization deepen.

POPULAR AUTHOR: Eisenstein is a thought leader with a devoted (and growing) following. He appeared as a guest on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday in 2018, and the first edition of Sacred Economics has sold more than 45,000 copies (across all formats) and has been translated into 9 languages.

HOT TOPIC: As gaps between the 1 and 99% continue to widen—amidst growing social tensions, environmental devastation, and other sources of global anxiety—frustrations with late-stage capitalism have become louder, more obvious, and more widely felt. Eisenstein exposes the cracks in an unsustainable system, offering a frameshift that will appeal to revolutionary thinkers, armchair economists, and those looking to make the world a better place for all.

TIMELY: As our economic system undergoes profound shocks, jolts, and transformations, Sacred Economics is uniquely positioned to offer timely solutions and explore alternative modes of thinking, spending, making, and being.
