Money and LifeHelp raise greater  awareness on the role of money in our lives and how together we can help build a more equitable and sustainable economy

Money and Life
is a compelling cinematic journey that examines the origins of money, how the role of money has changed over time, how it shapes our lives and world today, and the emerging movement to create new economic models that redefine our relationships with money.

The film presents a tapestry of expert interviews, narration, animated graphics and stories of individuals, communities, and small businesses who are seeking innovative ways to transform their relationship with money at the personal, local and global level. Experts include economists, authors, religious leaders, and a former JP Morgan executive.

Money and Life helps viewers understand the history and fundamentals of money in order to be more informed participants in the economic transformation happening around us.

Ultimately, the film asks, how can we move beyond being merely consumers, debtors and creditors, and create a more equitable and sustainable economy that meets the needs and realities of the 21st Century?

Among the experts and authors featured are:

  • John Perkins, best-selling author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman
  • Professor Jacob Needleman, author of Money and the Meaning of Life
  • Vicki Robin, co-author of Your Money or Your Life
  • Bernard Lietaur, currency expert and author of The Future of Money
  • John Fullerton, founder of Capital Institute and former JP Morgan managing director.
  • Hazel Henderson, Futurist and author of Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy
  • Lynne Twist of the Soul of Money Institute
  • Charles Eisenstein, author of Sacred Economics

"Money & Life is a lucid exploration about how one of humanities most brilliant inventions has turned into its darkest shadow, how money and debt haunt our highest aspirations, and undermine our greatest needs. Katie Teague's documentary is populated by some of the most thoughtful monetary pioneers who explain money's curse and promise, and point to new economic models that create social justice, economic security, and environmental health."
- Paul Hawken, Author, The Ecology of Commerce

"In Money & Life, the groundbreaking documentary, money takes center stage as a fascinating, fully-fleshed out yet still-evolving character."
- Partners for Prosperity
