In Hoodie Economics , Jack Manning Bancroft builds a values system revolution that centres a relational economy, offering urgent and transformative solutions to embrace Indigenous thinking and ideas from outside the margins and pushing the focus from capitalism to relationships – from the people in suits to the people in hoodies.

Economics is what we value, and in that way, economics is for everyone. But modern financial empires have shut out the many to instead prioritise ‘limitless’ market growth, attention economies and stock profits for the very few. We have been denied our sense of agency and taught to focus on the self above all, and the biggest stock that is down is our relationships – both with each other and with nature. But we have the powerful tools of imagination and exchange that will allow us to reshape economics for everyone.

Hoodie Economics draws on alternative intelligence sources to look at the patterns of money, ownership and reductive thinking that we have inherited, and how we have the potential to create a new (old) foundation of equality – relational economies instead of transactional ones, and networks that are truly social. Just as Jack Manning Bancroft sets out to reimagine economics, Hoodie Economics rethinks the economics book, inviting all readers to find their own way through its narratives and to feel energised by its ideas. In increasingly anxious and tumultuous times, this book offers a mind-expanding economic philosophy that centres unlikely connections, knowledge sharing, custodianship and joy.
