Could you live without money? Meet a guy who does.

One of the assumptions of American culture is that money equals success and happiness. There is a hegemonic assumption that we should all be pursuing money and we can't live without it. Here is a story about a man who gave up all money. He is educated and happy and he has a website and he even blogs about it! Although this story is an extreme one, it sure is interesting. Maybe we all won't give up our pursuit of money, but maybe we can work on giving up some of our assumptions about it.

  1. I don't think that I would be able to live without any money. I'm materialistic, but not to an extreme amount that most people are at. It's impressive how someone could live entirely free of money, since most peoples goal in life is to earn enough to get by.
