I raise some questions about ignored aspects of Economics, including money and a way to move forward compassionately in my article 'Breaking Free' in 2010 after presenting a workshop on 'Deep Conscious Capitalism' in Sakyadhita International Conference of Buddhist Women in Bangkok Thailand in 2009 and a paper on 'Dharma Economics' in same forum in 2011.
