Episode 104 Going Cashless the Leftwing Way
This show opens with me takes on the events of the J-6 reminding us to not take our eyes off of content in what we fight for in unfolding ‘civil war’; by presenting the topic of alternatives to capitalist money.
First and overview of the different types, and a look at each; the gift economy of Auroville; Timebanking in Detroit; the effort ethic of Parecon; and the Berkshares of the Berkshires. All have enormous potential to do and shape post-capitalism; and great for those without the ‘money’ of the banksters.
