Thomas's Upcoming Events

  • Thomas Greco at The New Economy Coalition
    Northeastern University, Boston MA
    June 6, 2014, 12:00 pm

    Tom Greco will participate at A National Gathering for the New Economy Movement on June 6-8 at Northeastern University. The New Economy Coalition is delighted to invite you to a convening at Northeastern University in Boston, MA from June 6-8, 2014. In the spirit of our ‘Strategies for a New Economy’ conference at Bard College in 2012, and our ‘ReRoute: Building Youth and Student Power for a New Economy” convergence at New York University in 2013, we will be bringing together a diverse group of the New Economy’s most energetic thinkers, practitioners, and newcomers. We intend to share practices, tools, and stories; highlight achievements; and create an environment that propels existing work and powerful innovations forward. Everywhere we look, people are experimenting with new ways to create sustainable businesses, share knowledge and resources, and build resilient and democratic communities. From many people and places, a common vision for a New Economy is gaining the momentum and power to transform our broken system. A movement is emerging, and now is the time to move towards greater unity and deeper action. Registration will open this winter and include meals, housing, and access to all conference events. Some scholarships will be provided in order to insure broad participation. The convening will be followed by the first full meeting of the organizational members of the New Economy Coalition, June 8th-9th.

Thomas's Books

The End of Money and the Future of Civilization

Very few people realize that the nature of money has changed profoundly over the past three centuries, or—as has been clear with the latest global financial crisis—the extent to which it has become a political instrument used to centralize power, concentrate wealth, and subvert popular government. On top of that, the economic growth imperative inherent in the present global monetary system is a main driver of global warming and other environmental crises.
