Manage episode 294536143 series 2806405
We know that current but old economic concepts have harmful gaps. And we know that these gaps still causing a lot of damage. Isn't it very strange that these harmful concepts still dominate our work, our society? Our so-called "economic professionals" cling to them and tell us that we will fix the damage these concepts have caused by keep on using these concepts? Sounds crazy. It is cray. When starting thinking about economics, we should finish thinking about it. Old, incomplete concepts have brought us to where we currently are. And yes: the damage is definitely significant, and we won’t solve the big problems this way. Good News: “Investment in caring for and educating people is the best investment a nation can make. And: Economy is a human creation. We can change it”. If you are ready to think about Caring Economics, if you want to listen to what economy has to do with caring for children and caring for our nature, you get food for thought in this episode. Right after you can delve into Riane Eisler’s books. Since 2020 a German version available. An episode with the great Dr. Riane Eisler, JD, PhD (hon), President of the Center for Partnership Studies, cultural historian and evolutionary theorist, social scientist, attorney, author. Her research, writing and speaking have influenced fields ranging from history, literature, philosophy, art, economics, psychology, anthropology, human rights, education, religious studies to economics, political science, women’s studies, management studies and healthcare. “High-quality human capital is not produced in the university!” An episode about some of her research results on Caring Economics. An episode about women’s quality of life as a powerful indicator of everyone’s quality of life. An episode about the GPD and its not logical but pathological view on value creation; about the economic contribution of unpaid work; about the latest on the Social Wealth Index, the economic value of caring and a few calls of action.
“It is economic suicide not to invest in human capacity development.” From Domination System to Partnership System. From Alpha to Beta. From an uneconomic approach to a healthy economy and society. Work the system.
