Geraldine Perry was born in Chicago and has lived in the Southwest suburbs most of her life. She has a Master's Degree in Education and an undergraduate minor in Library Science, both of which have served her well in her research and writing. Her subsequent training as a Certified Natural Health Consultant led to an increased interest in agriculture and the environment, and ultimately to the need for systemic monetary reform.
Decades of research over a wide variety of issues led to a truly holistic perspective not only in the overlapping spheres of health, agriculture and the environment but also with respect to the many social, political, and economic problems facing the world today. The scope and depth of her research has, in turn, provided Geri with a uniquely fresh perspective on complicated subjects, offering readers an opportunity to think anew about familiar issues and their most meaningful solutions.
About fifteen years ago, Geri began putting this perspective into written form. Her first published book, The Two Faces of Money was co-authored with Ken Fousek. Published in 2007, it won high praise from seasoned monetary reformers such as Charles Walters (himself a trained economist and founder of Acres USA) and Dick Distelhorst, both of whom were charter members of the American Monetary Institute and also part of the team that developed the American Monetary Act, which became the basis for the NEED Act (itself being the best legislation on monetary reform ever introduced to Congress).
Since then Geri has written articles for Dissident Voice and other online journals, and manages two websites: www.thetwofacesofmoney.com and www.thehealthadvantage.com. Climate Change, Land Use and Monetary Policy: The New Trifecta is her second book, and has again received high praise from those who have studied problems concerning the environment, agriculture and monetary systems.
In her spare time Geri enjoys reading, taking long walks, and picking raspberries in summer. She actively supports and is personally acquainted with the farmers who supply her and her locally engaged food community with some of the best, most nutrient dense food on the planet - all while at the same time rebuilding the soil by putting CO2 back where it is so very much needed. She resides with her husband and her furry friend Ali Cat in suburban Chicagoland.
