Meet the Authors: Mark Boyle
Mark Boyle became The Moneyless Man in November 2008 when he set out to try living completely without money for 12 months – not spending, earning, saving or using it. His first book The Moneyless Man: A Year of Freeconomic Living, was published in June 2010 by Oneworld Publications, and documents this journey. Having successfully completed the first year of moneyless living, Mark continued to live moneylessly for almost three years. He has written his new book, The Moneyless Manifesto, to support, inform and encourage others who would like to explore the possibility of living more with less. Mark is the founder of the Freeconomy movement – which puts people with skills, tools and time in touch with those with a need for these things, without money changing hands – and blogs at www.justfortheloveofit.org
As a companion to The Moneyless Manifesto, Mark and others have set up The Moneyless Manifesto website in order to encourage readers to share their experiences about moneyless living, or moving away from dependence on current cultures around modern economy.
Books by Mark
Follow Mark on an exploration that goes deep into the thinking that pushed him to make the decision to go moneyless, and the philosophy he developed along the way. Bursting with radical new perspectives on some of the vital, yet often unquestioned, pillars of economic theory and what it really means to be ‘sustainable’ – as well as creative and practical solutions for how we can live more with less – Mark offers us one of the world’s most thought-provoking voices on economic and ecological ideas.

A powerful exploration of the serious issues our world and humanity are facing and how we can change this. Mark examines climate change, global poverty, ecosystem destruction and so much more, leading us towards a more ecological society.
Drawing on inspiration from the natural world, he sets out the case for the rewilding of our political landscapes, calling for solidarity between reformers, revolutionaries and resisters for the creation of a world worth sustaining.
