The Man Who Quit Money

Daniel Suelo lives without money. Is it possible? Yes, indeed. First, he changed his name from Shellabarger to Suelo, which in Spanish means ground/soil. Then, he put his driving license and passport in the trash and started a new life. He lived in tents, isolated communities… Now, in a cavern. He cooks in a hand made broiler, normally dead animals that he find in the roads, and bathe in a cove. Sometimes he writes in a blog – Zero Currency – when some tourist lends him a laptop.

    This is a really interesting idea, to live without money. I don’t like the fact that money controls our lives. Much of what we do is to obtain money: money for living and money for entertainment… I wonder if we won’t be better off “quitting” money for awhile like the man in this book?
