For more information on the conference go to: http://www.bioneers.org/conference In celebration, we’ve put many of our sustainable business and various solution-oriented books on Sale for 25% off. Check out the list below! We are also delighted that globally renowned clean energy master Amory Lovins will present Reinventing Fire at Bioneers, a practical plan and roadmap for how the U.S. can get off fossil fuels by 2050 while simultaneously building a thriving, job-creating economy, led by business. Amory will show that a richer, fairer, cooler, safer world is possible, practical, and even profitable, because replacing fossil fuels now works better and costs no more than buying and burning them. As Amory notes of his boldest initiative yet: “Our experience convinces us that the world is short not of oil but of innovation, not of gas but of gumption, not of coal but of courage.”
We also wanted to highlight Bioneers by the Bay just one of the many live broadcast sites, and the closest one to us in New Bedford, MA. Last year over 2,000 attended and they are ready to roll up their sleeves again to harvest tangible, practical solutions to the specific challenges we face both in the Northeast and the world at large.

Thomas Greco provides specific design proposals and exchange-system architectures for local, regional, national, and global financial systems. He offers strategies for their implementation and outlines actions grassroots organizations, businesses, and governments will need to take to achieve success.
Ultimately, The End of Money and the Future of Civilization provides the necessary understanding- for entrepreneurs, activists, and civic leaders-to implement approaches toward monetary liberation. These approaches would empower communities, preserve democratic institutions, and begin to build economies that are sustainable, democratic, and insulated from the financial crises that plague the dominant monetary system.
Check out Thomas Greco
“A stimulating and well-balanced work. Here, the serious student of monetary reform will find the mature reflections of a leading advocate of credit clearing. Thomas Greco’s analysis of the modern monetary problem is excellent, his solution is practical and founded upon basic principles of justice. Policy makers and communities across diverse cultures and religions can learn much from this detailed and eloquent book. I strongly recommend it.” - Tarek El Diwany, author of The Problem With Interest
