In Breaking the Power of Money (3 min, 45 sec), Dr. Lendol Calder (Professor of History, Augustana College) talks about the power of money, the monetization of daily life, and one of the best ways to undo money’s power.
To stimulate reflection: As you return to campus after the holiday push and take some stock in your financial footing for the new year, invite some friends to check out this video in order to discuss:
- ability to “profane” money
- responses to and possible applications of Calder’s suggestion of how to “break the power of money”.
