Resources from Tom Atlee on Economics

OK, so this entire email from Tom Atlee has been sitting in my inbox for a bit — I keep coming back to it and forwarding it to others.

Check these out — just because they are brilliant. Thanks again, Tom.

This is, for me, the most inspiring TED Talk I’ve ever seen.

Silver Donald Cameron – Bhutan: The Pursuit of Gross National Happiness

And here are a film and a book that expand and deepen the view that economics can and should be about generating good lives in a good society in a good world – in ways that speak to the cultures, realities and daily lives that most of us live in.

The film is the upcoming movie “Money and Life”

The book is “Sacred Economics” by Charles Eisenstein,

for me the most significant book I’ve read in a decade,
about which I’ll have more to say later
but you can read a preview article at

Finally, I offer this as a good closing poem for this email:
