Money Farm Chapter 7

The simplicities of life are what make it rich.

Complexity makes things unfathomable. There is reason for that.

The complex had always fascinated me; however, there had been no time previously to watch the comings and goings of the M.O.N.E.Y.s. What’s more, there were no statistics revealing how much the M.O.N.E.Y. individuals earned. The only research I could find stated that every worker had been psychologically profiled and perfectly aligned to their corresponding role within the system. The M.O.N.E.Y. ‘farm’ had concealed and restricted all access to their information. The secrecy of the M.O.N.E.Y. behaviour triggered a gut reaction - something did not financially add up. How could the M.O.N.E.Y.s be so financially stable amongst a debt-driven economy? Surely investment was coming from somewhere – but who? Was there a system or pattern to their financial habits and status?

The more I studied the more obvious it became how the debt habit consumed the world outside the M.O.N.E.Y. farm. The universal acceptance of debt as ‘normal’ remained unquestioned by the masses. Banks lent to banks, people borrowed from banks and government sovereignties generated debt between countries and banks. All lent and borrowed to and from each other with a variety of differing interest rates. Debt was being used to support additional debt. Over time a stalemate developed and the debt disease infected the majority of the world including governments, corporations and individuals. Everyone who stepped into the debt dynamic remained trapped in the cycle of financial survival and growing repayments. Any kind of debt confession received sneers in the same way as alcoholism or drug addiction. How could people have the audacity to lose financial control? How dare they admit financial weakness and vulnerability? The society that taught its individuals to suppress emotion also endorsed debt avoidance and debt denial. In fact, the addiction to financial lack through the illusion of loans had caused the original issue. Denial would ultimately lead to further crisis. Suppression resulted in a debt disease – the financial cancer. All the while the distracting celebrity circuses invaded the homes of the mass who were repetitiously fed dissatisfaction. Over two thousand messages per day repeatedly told the individual they were not good enough. Their unsuspecting subconscious was being persuasively raped – the result buying objects and things that they did not need to fulfill an empty desire to conform and feel good enough. The more the individual was told they were not good enough, the more products were offered to solve that issue. It never worked, no psychological problem or belief could be solved with an object. The real issue was the lack of individual self-esteem.

            In contrast, M.O.N.E.Y.’s appeared united in their financial methodology. It was like watching a rare breed flourish amongst the collapsing system. What’s more, they weren’t living off the ruin of others. They were not parasitic, more symbiotic. They had been privy to an insight into accumulation whilst others lived in depreciation. They were a wealth hybrid that now controlled the financial machine. Something mysterious was taking place behind the walls of the M.O.N.E.Y. farm. It was no coincidence that their behaviour was so calculated. The more I watched the M.O.N.E.Y.s, the more fascinated I became. M.O.N.E.Y. held the answers into an alternative and an insight into the M.O.N.E.Y.-tary system. Maybe there was a level of progression within their system. Maybe it could reveal financial answers to society as a whole. The question was: how did one find out?

Narration - Helen Lloyd - Kick A$$!
Really Great Narration - Brits and Aussies and Germans and more. Lovely voice to listen to and she even captured the rather robotic nature of the cult-like members of the Money Farm.

This is a really terrific book - and is it bad that for the majority of the book I was thinking "sign me up!" (or at least sign up one of my grand-kids and let me move into one of the retirement neighborhoods).

The Money's are all 'their best selves' due to the nutrition and fitness requirements along with a few other treatments along the way which are tailored to each individual and allow them to reach their full potential. All their needs are met, they have no debts, no worries, they are appreciated and they all live in really nice digs. (like I said...sign me up!)

It's a smartly written and thought provoking book of a Dystopian/Eutopian society where our heroine Jyllian finds her-self jobless with her savings running out. She ends up being selected to join the M.O.N.E.Y.'s as a "breaker" because of her intelligent & rebellious way of thinking. She is to challenge their systems and find ways to break them, all in the name of making them better.

The story follows her and a few other select characters through their introduction to Money, their training, their indoctrination and ultimately through their discovery of what Money's goals really are.

I can't really say much more without giving away too much, but I thought it was a really terrific book. It was hard for me to 'get into it' in the beginning, but I plan to listen to the start again.

It's smartly written and filled with intricate details about these two "worlds". Really an interesting book about the state of the worlds finances! Loved it! I'm actually stunned that I'm only the second review of this book on Goodreads. READ or LISTEN to it! It's a keeper!

I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from Audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review.
