The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics

Riane Eisler’s latest work delivers a characteristically pointed and timely critique of Western standards for measuring wealth and well-being. With a gender-sensitive framework for her arguments, she identifies historically unpaid work—like caregiving—as a long overlooked source of social capital. Drawing from alternative definitions of wealth and health, and from a growing body of feminist economic literature, Eisler combines employment numbers and stock market reports with a thorough assessment of the time and energy individuals invest in caring for one another. Essential reading for progressive policymakers, social scientists, feminists, and students of the global economy alike.
