LISTEN: It’s the Slow Economy, Stupid: An Interview with Tom Greco

Green. Moolah. Coin. Benjamins. Greenbacks. Clams. Semolians. Dough. What is this mystical thing we call … money? And after this latest Wall Street crash and the global economic bellyflop that’s come to be known by some as the Great Recession, how can we be sure the people who say they know what it is actually do?

When there’s work that needs to be done, and people willing to do it, but no money to grease the wheels of capitalism, what can be done to fix the system? How do we prevent this from ever happening again?

Thomas Greco, author of The End of Money and the Future of Civilization, talks about all this and more in this podcast from Conscious Talk Radio.
