May 16, 2018
Riane Eisler’s seminal book The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics is cited this week in Intelligent HG’s post “Towards the Caring Economy: Shifting From Numbers to People”.

“The most important, yet undervalued, human work”— at the very top of the economic chain— “is the ultimate goal of economics”,  says acclaimed scientist Riane Eisler. And she further explains, “The Caring Economy Campaign (CEC) is shifting focus from GDP and Wall Street to the enormous economic return from investing in caring for people and nature”.

Riane Eisler: “Caring Economy Campaign programs provide the missing foundations needed to support the many grassroots organizations today working to end cycles of poverty and promote women’s empowerment, economic security, and justice for all. The CEC demonstrates the financial return on investment from paid sick and family leave, quality affordable Pre-K, paycheck fairness, and other policies needed for equal rights, opportunities, and U.S. competitiveness in the knowledge/service economy.”

    Say, a friend just sent me this link to an interview from Freakonomics Radio. I suggest that CPS contact the radio show to propose that an interview with Riane Eisler and the Caring Economy Campaign would be a very good idea. In the show Andrew Yang, a man in his early 40s who I have never heard of, makes mention of the essential work of caregiving. Riane has so much to offer to expand upon his observation.
