An article on Wealth by Daniel Quinn:

On Wealth
Daniel Quinn

Daniel Quinn is the author of the book Ishmael, and subsequent books in the same 'story'.  I stumbled on him by reading his book, Providence in a single evening.  He espouses many of the ideas I've been circling around for a couple of decades, and he does so with clarity and with accuracy that I can't reach in my own thoughts and writing.  So, I'll let him say it :-)  I think that a lot of what he says is germaine to the modern shaman's conundrum of "how do I practice this tribal art form/scienceform of shamanism in my modern, non-tribal world?" 

The answer, of course, is a very shamanic one:  we do not inhabit the world we think we do.
