Abstract:

To William Bloom, money is not just an instrument of commerce; it also exerts a powerful force on our psyches and is a dynamic tool for social innovation. Bloom opens his book with a provocative, contrarian assertion: Money was not created to enable economic activity. Instead, early forms of money were given or exchanged to mark an important moment - a marriage, a rite of passage - or as a gesture of respect to a former foe. Yes, he acknowledges, money also came to.

Facilitate trade, but its fundamental role was to further human relationships. In forceful, fluent language Bloom argues that our society has created a pinched, limited view of money, and he encourages his readers to create new personal and social perspectives on money. From personal thrift to ethical investing to philanthropy, Money, Heart and Mind is an emboldening, myth-shattering book that blazes a trail toward a new financial consciousness. It suggests personal,

Collective, and corporate strategies for creating true wealth - empowering individuals and communities while also enriching our planet.
