Money Makes the World Go Around?

No, it doesn't.  But it stokes the engine and oils the wheels. 

Money and our personal access to resources affects us in all sorts of ways.  Lack of money can affect our self-esteem, i.e. how we feel about ourselves.  Where we can afford to live, what kinds of holidays we can have, even, in some parts of the world (including Britain), whether or not our families will eat today. 

Miki Kashtan argues that the ways we exchange money and resources can be changed by applying empathy.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to live in a world in which everyone has plenty, everyone has access to abundant resources, rather than some people accumulating vast resources and others having nothing? 

It is possible to redress this imbalance.  And Miki gives examples from her own experience.  Check out her blog posts:
