charles eisenstein talking about the gift economy. same guy that was featured in the awesome occupy love clip! his video speaks a lot to me, and the solutions he lists make a lot of sense (negative interest, internalization of costs, social dividend, relocalization, p2p finance), gonna check out his book!

an economy that embodies the principles of the gift is an economy that is simply grounded in the truth. the task before us is to align money with the true expression of our gifts.

la soif du monde / a thirsty world – the new film by yann arthus-bertrand on the global water and sanitation crisis! i was lucky enough to see the premiere in marseille last week (at the rather disappointing world water forum), and it was fantastic. i almost liked it more than his last film, home.

i’m a huge fan of yann, ever since i stumbled upon his earth from above outdoor exhibition in london. a few years later i was also lucky enough to see the fantastic 6 milliards d’autres exhibition in paris. and now he’s involved in the same business i am!

today is world water day! one day out of the year to talk about the massive water, sanitation and hygiene crisis that kills 4000 children every day. that’s more than HIV, malaria, and measles combined!
