Science, COVID, and an Economy That Cares

October 8, 2020

Listen to the interview with Dr. Riane Eisler on Scientific Sense, a daily podcast focused on Science and Economics. In this conversation with Gill Eapen, Eisler shares scientific findings in her latest book, Nurturing Our Humanity: How Domination and Partnership Shape Our Brains, Lives, and Future, that show how domination patterns in family systems affects the neurobiology of the developing brain in early childhood.

In economics, we can work toward partnership-based social systems and a more caring economy. “We need enlightened corporate and business policies as well as government policies”, including new social metrics such as the Social Wealth Index that measure the value of caring work. COVID has shown us how fragile our current economic system is, and how caring workers on the front lines of the pandemic have been affected economically.
