The Value of Money For Nothing

Blog post written by Donnie Maclurcan, co-founder of the Post Growth Institute

Giving things away freely – time, knowledge, possessions and money - has been and continues to be a truly valuable aspect of my freedom. My grandmother was a big inspiration. She lived simply yet, in the last years of her life, if you commented appreciatively about any item in her house she would suggest you take it. In part, her…
