The Real Wealth of Nations - Creating a Caring Economics
The Real Wealth of Nations - Creating a Caring Economics
Eisler, Riane
Adam Smith's 'The Wealth of Nations' provided the first, most influential and lasting explanation of the workings of modern economics. But with his focus on 'the market' as the best mechanism for producing and distributing the necessities of life, Smith's concepts only told part of the story, leading to flawed economic models that devalue activities that fall outside of the market's parameters of buying and selling. The real wealth of nations, Riane Eisler argues, is not merely financial, but includes the contributions of people and our natural environment. Here, Eisler goes beyond the market to reexamine economics from a larger perspective--and shows that we must give visibility and value to the socially and economically essential work of caring for people and the planet if we are to meet the enormous challenges we are facing.
