Looking Beyond Money: Yancey Strickler’s Upcoming Book Shares the Blueprint for Building a Generous World

Yancey Strickler is best known for being the mind behind Kickstarter, the crowdfunding platform that’s brought countless great ideas to life. Now, he’s looking beyond money to consider how we can maximize our values. In his new book This Could Be Our Future—now available for pre-order—Strickler outlines how we can build a generous, fair, and equitable society. 

We live in a world of financial maximization, says Yancey Strickler. Meaning, we live in a world in which accumulating more money is always the end goal; always the right goal. But what if the point of life was not to maximize our self-interest and wealth? What if we could expand our definition of value to include things like community, purpose, and sustainability? This is the central argument of This Could Be Our Future: A Manifesto for a More Generous World, Strickler’s new book out this October. In it, he explains how we got to this dizzying point of late-stage capitalism, how we can refocus our energies, and how to create a global shift from scarcity to abundance.
