The Misfit Economy
Kyra Maya Phillips is a reader and a storyteller. She is the co-author of The Misfit Economy , a book which chronicles stories of creativity from informal and dark markets around the globe. Research for this book has taken her to pirate prisons in Somalia, tunnels networks deep below the city of Paris, Amish camel farms, ganglands in Cape Town, and into the history books to study 18th century pirate ships. Alongside The Misfit Economy, Kyra is a co-founder of The Point People, a collective of innovators, artists, and entrepreneurs committed to driving systemic change for a more equitable society. She has written for and appeared in publications around the world, including BBC, NPR, The Economist, The Financial Times, TIME, Newsweek, Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, Wired, Forbes, Dazed and Confused, The Irish Times, Le Monde, and The Guardian.
