Charles Eisenstein claims that “when you destroy a society, when you take it apart, you humiliate it… of course you’re gonna have anger, coming from there. And when you destroy the stories that have carried people (the narratives that form the basis of a healthy society) then people are going to desperately seek any narrative that gives them a feeling of agency and power.”
Author of Sacred Economics and several other books which explore connections between economic and cultural systems and their philosophical roots, Charles Eisenstein articulates a vision of what he calls ‘The More Beautiful World’ that he calls humankind to bring into being.
Charles graduated from Yale University with degrees in math and philosophy, and is also a fluent Chinese speaker owing to several years spent living in Taiwan and subsequently working as a translator. He is currently based in Asheville, North Carolina in the Eastern United States.
