"Currencies and finances become localized, and the pace of life slows down, allowing time for family and connection to nature."

Leading thinkers unroll their blueprints for a new economy.

"Today, the value of women’s unpaid work is estimated at $11 trillion per year."

We all know that the times call for urgent and drastic changes to our broken global economic system. The question is: How far are we willing to go? Enter women leaders who envision nothing less than sweeping paradigm shifts to our modern-day economic order.

Most of these powerful visionaries have been predicting our current financial collapse and calling for radical systemic changes for decades. These contemporary Cassandras have identified fatal flaws—and huge opportunities—that rarely show up on the balance sheets of traditional economists and world leaders.

As economies collapse, the international community has become increasingly receptive to fresh ideas. The perspectives of these largely unsung authorities—and thousands more like them—may finally get the airing they deserve. If so, we have hope of finding our way toward real economic systems that will flourish and fulfill us all.

Read on to hear from visionaries Riane Eisler, Wahu Kaara, Genevieve Vaughn, Fridah Manenji, Hazel Henderson, and Jacqueline Novogratz. . . .
