This talk argues for in-kind economies that embody real, social and ecological, values as ways to develop just and equitable societies living within Earth’s limits. Themes centre on a ‘real value’ vs monetary, framing of informal vs formal economies, drawing mainly on a recent work, Beyond Money: A Postcapitalist Strategy(2022).
