About the author

Mark Boyle has lived completely without money for almost three years, an experience which formed the basis for his first book, The Moneyless Man (2010) and the subsequent book, The Moneyless Manifesto (2012). His new book, Drinking Molotov Cocktails with Gandhi is out now (2015).

He holds a degree in Business and for most of his professional career was involved in the management of organic food companies. He is also a trustee of Streetbank.

He gives talks internationally (but doesn’t fly which makes it difficult for him to go very far very often!) and writes intermittently for various international newspapers and magazines, such as the Guardian, New Internationalist and Permaculture magazine.

He is currently in the process of creating a fully localised, land-based gift economy in Éire which will demonstrate how all the ideas and practical solutions described in The Moneyless Manifesto can be integrated into one holistic system design.
