  • Indigenous tribes that don't use money. Question of whether it is essential?
  • "Money isn't the problem. Money isn't good or bad. Money itself doesn't have power or not have power. It is our interpretation of money, our interaction with it, where the real mischief is and where we find the real opportunity for self-discovery and personal discovery. 
  • The tool doesn't have power.
  • When you have money, you can make different choices.
  • Yes, you can have power without money. (ex Rosa Parks)
  • Is causation, money then power, or power than money?

  • The relationship between value and money. Does the price determine value?
  • Value-based versus time-based pricing
  • Matching your pricing to regional values and the market
  • Value can differ even if price is the same (too many external factors)
  • Price has to be high enough to be taken seriously
  • Using internal resources to respond to a scarcity of external resources
  • Support becomes more apparent when times are scarce
  • Look for new relationships/resources when times are scarce
  • Limits and constraints create innovation
  • We often have resources within us, that we forget about because we often think of assets outside of ourselves
  • If you don't have time, what do you have? 
  • Spending matching values
  • Money being like water
  • Charity being a redistribution mechanism
