    The Dead’s model was so successful, it’s taught in business schools and codified in books like Marketing Lessons from the Grateful Dead and Everything I Know About Business I Learned from the Grateful Dead.

    In “Garcia: An American Life,” the biography of Jerry Garcia, the Dead’s guitar player, songwriter and figurehead, a clear picture emerges of the tenets Garcia upheld from the very beginning of the band:

    •Work is a family affair. It’s important to shelter, support and share with a larger community.
    •Money is second fiddle to living the kind of life you want to live. You can build your own economy.

    •Push the envelope whenever possible.
