Slow Money: Bringing Money Down to Earth

by

As we know, money is energy. We often hear this in spiritual prosperity classes in regard to “getting” money. But what effect does the flow of how we spend our money have on our overall well-being? Are the shifts taking place supporting us becoming more aware of where we spend our money? Woody Tasch has done some interesting work in this area. What are your thoughts on this?

Good News of the Day:
Woody Tasch has thought a lot about money: what it does, how it moves, and how to connect people who have it with people who need it. He even helped found a field of investing with the rather surprising name “community development venture capital.” But he found that even socially responsible investing couldn’t do much to fix an economy that focused too much on extraction and consumption and too little on preservation and restoration. In 2008, Tasch wrote Inquiries into the Nature of Slow Money: Investing as if Food, Farms, and Fertility Mattered. Soon after, he founded the Slow Money Alliance, an NGO devoted to the principles of slowing money down, reconnecting it to the Earth, and respecting carrying capacity, the commons, sense of place, and nonviolence. Tasch calls it the transition from “Making A Killi! ng” to “Making a Living.” [ more ]
