Thomas H. Greco, Jr. is the director of the Community Information Resource Center, which he founded in 1992. He is the author of, among others, The End of Money and the Future of Civilization.

The following video was recorded by Todd Boyle in the basement of Elliot Bay Books in November of this year.

Over the past several decades, onetime engineer, professor, and entrepreneur Thomas H. Greco, Jr. has been looking closely at money and economic systems, seeing them for what they are, where they’ve come from, and how they might be altered. He does this most cogently, insightfully, and recently in The End of Money and the Future of Civilization (Chelsea Green). “For the growing ranks of monetary reformers worldwide, long-time expert Tom Greco’s deeply researched new book is essential reading. This gripping blend of theory and practicality lays out all the options for creating saner money and credit systems.” – Hazel Henderson. “This book cuts to the very core of the trouble—and points toward several pathways that might allow us to slowly climb out of the pit into which we’ve stumbled.” – Bill McKibben. Tom Greco has worked for many years with alternative currency and mutual credit projects in Seattle, and worldwide, in a deep, hands-on way. He is the real deal.
