Why should we re-invest surplus?


One of the greatest concepts I have learnt in my life is the Eight Forms of Capital.

I first heard it on Peak Prosperity and later traced it back to Appleseed Permaculture.

The Eight Forms of Capital are (in no particular order):

  • Financial Capital
  • Living Capital
  • Cultural Capital
  • Experiential Capital
  • Knowledge Capital
  • Spiritual Capital
  • Social Capital
  • Material Capital

When we need to, we can trade one form of capital for another.

This ties into Re-Investing Surplus. We don’t ask for charity. We offer a Value for Value exchange.
