The Wealth of Nature: Economics as if Survival Mattered by John Michael Greer

This book proposes a new model of economics that examines the true cost of confusing money with wealth. The book explores public policy and personal choices that can help alleviate the mistakes of contemporary economics and illustrates how an economy centered on natural capital (raw materials) can move towards a more productive relationship with the planet that sustains us all.
