A companion book with Renewing The Sacred by William Barnes.

This timely book explains how we can work together to achieve true prosperity for all by changing what the author, William Barnes, calls the moral economy of our societies. The moral economy is those exchanges of values, not goods or money, that happen when people meet each other on the street or at work, or get together in homes, parks, malls, and neighborhoods.

All economies have a moral dimension to them. The moral economy of materialist society, especially its consumerist form, is built upon and expresses values that encourage actions and attitudes that are self-serving and self-centered. This is supposed to generate wealth, security and well-being. But, except for a fortunate few, it does just the opposite. This must be changed. The moral economy that William Barnes envisions works through three core principles: sharing, service, and self-sacrifice. That is, sharing wealth, serving others, and sacrificing personal interests for a common good. Individuals willing to share, serve and sacrifice act as a powerful catalyst to create a society that is truly prosperous.
