Summary

The money-based global economy is failing. The credit crunch undermined capitalism's ability to ensure rising incomes and prosperity while market-led attempts to combat climate change are fought tooth and nail by multinational corporations driven purely by profit.We urgently need to combat those who say 'there is no alternative' to the current system, but what would an alternative look like? The contributors to Life Without Money argue that it is time radical, non-market models were taken seriously. The book brings together diverse voices to form a strong argument against our money-based system's ability to improve lives and prevent environmental disaster. Crucially, it also provides a direct strategy for undercutting capitalism by refusing to deal in money, and offers money-free models of governance and collective sufficiency.Life Without Money is written by high-profile activist scholars making it an excellent text for political economy and environmental courses as well as an inspiring manifesto for those who want to take action.
