The man who lives without money

August 19th, 2010 at 09:31 am

Just came across this interesting article.

I have mixed feelings about this. To me, money is just a representation of value. He has a laptop, for example, and it doesn't matter to me if he worked for the laptop in a barter, or if he worked for money, and then bought the laptop. The result is the same. So, why avoid money?

On the other hand, I do admire the fact that he not only tries, but actually enjoys a very simple form of living. Even if we don't strive to live without money, there are some useful tips that I think we can learn from his experiences. He also has a forum that I am reading through right now. Looks interesting.

    Apparently when you live without money you can neither smile nor wear a shirt. : )

    "and I might not even fancy her" ??

    Seems a bit arrogant to me!

    Interesting concept, but no thank you. My brother is doing his best to get by with no income at the moment and none for the foreseeable future. I don't blame him - the STBX is being a B****. Once that's over with, I can't seem him living a low/no money life!

    So...

    What's he going to do with the money from the book?

    Hopefully, he will buy a shirt. Big Grin

    Interesting. But.. he has a mobile phone for incoming calls? Even a prepay still needs some credit to stay active, usually I guess it would be around 20 UK pounds every 6 months. And a website? A hosting service (and a domain name) usually costs too, even if just a little.
