they are economic books that I think most permaculture folks would enjoy. Supposed to be January reading, but gonna have to find something else!

1) Small is Beautiful- E.F. Schumacher an oldy, but a goody

2) Saved- Ben Hewitt ( not religious,despite the title, if anyone cares)

3) Sacred Economics- Charles Eisenstein

Thanks for sharing Mick!

I'm currently loving Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder by Nassim Taleb: http://www.amazon.com/Antifragile-Things-That-Gain-Disorder/dp/1400067820

The word "economics" comes from the Greek word "Oikonomia" which literally means household management and is very relevant to permaculture

A great video for wrapping your head around antifragility:
