Quote I liked
"Working with money is always part of the psychology or the philosophy of a situation. So we need basic criteria for working with money. Working with money requires discipline to know how much money you need for a week, how much money is required to live for a day or a month. Living in any society requires this process of discipline. We have to work along with the pattern of society. In that context, it seems that a relationship with money is necessary. We have to actually face the whole problem of money as it is." - Chogyam Trungpa

We cannot eat Money
In Gandhian economics the vision is a system that “meets needs” rather than “feeds wants.” If we unpack some of what drives us individually into the lure of “more,” we find universal needs like safety/security, belonging and self-esteem, along with what our physical survival calls for.
Ted Talk I recommend watching
Poverty isn't a lack of character; it's a lack of cash
"I believe in a future where the point of education is not to prepare you for another useless job but for a life well-lived. I believe in a future where an existence without poverty is not a privilege but a right we all deserve." This is a topic close to my heart, poverty has always bothered me. A Ted Talk with a clear vision & solution- wonderful!
