Show Notes

How can we orient around making enough money instead of trying to make an ever-increasing amount more? What does it look like to live a good life under capitalism, while also working toward a more equitable world? 

Bear Hebert (they/them) is an anti-capitalist business coach and social justice educator who joins us to share some of the most common misconceptions people have about anti-capitalism. We talk about why we need to be critiquing the system and not the indiviual, and Bear shares their process for determining your "enough" number, as well as the benefit of having both a survival budget and a thriving budget.
