"Co-production is a bold, pragmatic strategy that shatters limits on social change. This book exposes the Dark Side of money and market. It redefines economics by treating households and community as a separate economy. Placing that economy on a par with market generates a new exchange dynamic the empowers us all to become change agents who can shape the future; convert failing social programs into catalysts for social justice; enlist Throw-Away People as partners in a shared mission; and create the world we want for our children."--Publisher's description.

What a fabulous idea. Thank You so much for doing all this research. It is a phenomenal way to rethink money and I am currently working on implementing a plan in my own small town. I LOVE this work you are doing. I think the title might scare people away but this is a simply genius idea. I have always described money as an exchange of energy but I never really saw how literal that could be.
