Meet The Man Who Quit Money

(Vimeo) The American Who Quit Money To Live In A Cave

by David Eckenrode 1 week 5 days ago

Another story I did for the BBC.

Mark Sundeen, the author of book, ‘The Man Who Quit Money’ is a soulful journey into the spirit of Daniel Suelo. Suelo, gave up on money in 2000. He walked into a phone booth, pulled out 30 dollars and left it. Twelve years later, Suelo still does not have a personal i.d. bank accounts, a modern home, does not take money, or live off of federal welfare. Suelo, lives in caves in the canyon lands outside of Moab, UT. Suelo, harvests wild foods, eats roadkill, and dumpster dives. Suelo, is not an isolationist, he still is very active in the Moab community SE Utah politics and he is an active blogger.

Sundeen, knew Suelo from Moab, UT when they both worked together as cooks, but years later Sundeen came across Suelo in a market he payed him no attention, but after Sundeen, gave thought to the current economy and Suelo’s philosophy he began to write his book in 2009. Sundeen’s book focuses on one man, but the message of the book captures the American zeitgeist of a changing economy.
