Free Money Day

TOMORROW, SEPTEMBER 15th, at various public locations worldwide, people will hand out their own money to complete strangers, two coins or notes at a time, asking the recipients to pass one of these coins or notes on to someone else.

The aim is to raise awareness and start conversations about the benefits of economies based on sharing, as well as offer a liberating experience that gets us thinking more critically and creatively about our relationship with money and how we could have new types of economic activity. Free Money Day is an initiative of the Post Growth Institute, an international group seeking to inspire and equip people everywhere to explore paths to global prosperity that don’t rely on economic growth.

  1. This is one of the key problems of the current economy is that there are no alternative ideas and there are no forums or platforms where these ideas can be discussed. Universities teach monetary economics only and it seems there is a demand coming from the people themselves for alternative worldview and alternative ways of managing economies.

    This event is a show of people trying to answer how will companies and private individuals adjust to the prolonged downturn? What will be the new way of managing the economy, transacting business and what kind of society we will have.
