The Man Who Quit Money

Oct 25, 2012

In 2000, Daniel Suelo left his life savings, just $30, in a phone booth in Moab and walked away. Twelve years later, he enjoys an apparently full and sane life without money, credit, barter or government hand-outs, fulfilling a vision of the good life inspired by his spiritual guides: Jesus, Buddha and wandering Hindu monks. The writer Mark Sundeen has written a book that traces the path and the singular idea that led Suelo to his extreme lifestyle. Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Sundeen and Suelo.

Mark Sundeen and Daniel Suelo will be at the Main Library in downtown Salt Lake City on Saturday, October 27, to discuss Mark's book and Daniel's life. The event begins at  3 p.m. and it's part of the Utah Humanities Council Book Festival. Learn more.
