Beyond Money Podcast

Jul 26, 2020

The concept of the “credit commons” is something articulated at length in Thomas Greco’s 2009 book The End of Money and the Future of Civilization, along with a thorough description of how it can be reclaimed from monopoly control.

In November of 2010, the International Commons Conference: Constructing a Commons Based Policy Platform Economy was sponsored by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, in Berlin, Germany.

In this six-minute presentation, Greco points out that credit is a crucial aspect of “the commons” which has been generally overlooked. Reclaiming it is crucial to any attempt to promote social justice, economic equity, democratic government and a world that works for everyone.
