Our Mission

Empower people to co-create vibrant, inclusive, and regenerative economies.

Pod of Gold was created to inspire creative activism and social innovation. We believe the successful evolution of human society will require a profound transformation of the systems that shape our behavior. Primary among these is our economic system and the role of money in society.

Our goal is to shed light on deleterious economic forces and highlight promising new tools (mental models, collaborative platforms, integrative practices, regenerative production and consumption, new types of exchange) that could lead us to a more inclusive, prosperous, and sustainable future.

Our Values

Inclusion: We believe everyone should have the knowledge they need to survive, contribute, and thrive. We provide accessible, affordable products and programs for everyone, especially for people in marginalized communities.

Empowerment: We provide the building blocks for social and economic literacy, including the systems thinking necessary to participate in, and help create, the future of society.

Innovation: We believe radical transformation of social and economic systems is both inevitable and necessary for human survival. Our products and programs prepare next-generation leaders to design new systems that include and empower everyone.

Interdependence: Our society is largely fueled by the pursuit of self-interest, often without regard for the interests of others. We aspire to foster societal systems that account for interconnected interests, build common resources, and ensure stewardship of happy humans on a healthy planet.
