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 “financial innovation” creates a shadow economy accountable to no one—when money is no longer connected to real goods —when it’s just a bunch of numbers in the air—what does that mean for the single mother who can’t afford to feed her family?

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.
