The Real Wealth of Nations

with Riane Eisler

To avoid economic disaster, eminent social scientist and bestselling author, Riane Eisler, points the way to a sustainable and equitable economy that values our greatest economic assets: people and our natural environment. The great problems of our time – poverty, inequality, war, terrorism, and environmental degradation – are due largely to flawed economic systems that set the wrong priorities and misallocate resources. Conventional economic models fail to value and support the most essential human work: caring and caregiving. So basic human needs are increasingly neglected, despair and ecological destruction escalate, and the resulting social tensions fuel many of the conflicts we face today. Eisler offers a bold reformation: a caring economics that transcends traditional categories like capitalist and socialist and offers enormous economic and social benefits.
