Money Moksha

The Video Money Moksha is a critical animation of money and modern capitalist economies. Using grounded and accessible pedagogy, aimed at grade twelve and above, the video explores the nature of money as abstracted labour, the benefits of money in global economic exchange, and the economic, emotional, psychological, and global costs (human and otherwise) of unfettered capital accumulation.

The video is accompanied by the book, Rocket Scientists' Guide to Money and the Economy, a website, a student manual, teacher manual, and exam bank. Visit the ABOER Project site for access and download.

The animation and book are intended to be used in grade eleven or twelve classroom, and in critical university courses across several disciplines, including sociology, history, economics, and even psychology.
