“You are only as free as your purchasing power will allow you to be.” - Peter Joseph
I will start with the bad news. Unfortunately (for most of us) this observation holds true in the world that we live in today. This talk outlines how our current macroeconomic structure is directly in conflict with the world’s natural order. PJ moves briskly, but does a great job explaining his assumptions and the proposed alternative model.
It is not all gloomy though - here is where it gets better: we are already witnessing alternative approaches to investment, lending and ownership. This is encouraging. Slowly, we inch towards a world where ideas are brought to life - and not just what is profitable, but also what is possible.
