Transitioning to a HUMAN Based Economy: By FeelingAwake
Sorry I haven’t posted anything lately, but time has been sparse and I haven’t been feeling particularly creative as of late. This article is going to focus on something called the HUMAN ECONOMY. This piece will be heavily influenced by my reading of David Graeber and Daniel Quinn to name a few. Should you want a good primer on where I am coming from on this article, please read “Debt: a 5000 year history”(Graber) or “Ishmael”(Quinn).
Were I to ask you what the Opposite of a “Free Market” or “Capitalist” economy were, the majority of you would answer with either a “Socialist” or “Communist” economy. In either case you would be wrong. The opposite of a Free Market economy is called a Human based economy. Whereas the free market is based on the idea of wealth being derived from the wares or services you render for society, the human based economy values those that build connections within their community.
