Founder Perry Gruber discusses Copiosis, an alternative socio-economic system

Is there a way to end wealth disparity, poverty, unemployment and crime? Could society function without debt, credit, banks, taxes or even money?  What about guaranteed access to health care, housing, education, food and clothing--for everyone--at no cost to the recipient? According to Portlander Perry Gruber all of this is possible if we'd embrace a socio-economic innovation called Copiosis. Furthermore, it would spur us to be helpful to one another and to stop polluting the planet. Founded by Gruber in 2013, Copiosis faces enormous challenges, but interest has been growing around the world.

The First Bad Man by Miranda July

“Miranda July's ability to pervert norms while embracing what makes us normal is astounding. Writing in the first person with the frank, odd lilt of an utterly truthful character, she will make you laugh, cringe and recognize yourself in a woman you never planned to be. By the time July tackles motherhood, the book has become a bible. Never has a novel spoken so deeply to my sexuality, my spirituality, my secret self. I know I am not alone.” (Lena Dunham, author of Not That Kind of Girl)
