"....this book shows that to construct an economic system that can help us meet the enormous challenges we face, we must give visibility and value to the socially and economically essential work of caring for people and nature."
So says Riane Eisler - President of the Center for Partnership Studies and Founder of the Caring Economy Campaign.
Author of "The Real Wealth of Nations". I first read her "Chalice and the Blade" about partnership systems, versus the current domination systems, and was so inspired by here way back in 1980's. She has gone on to write numerous other titles of considerable gravitas, and this one has just jumped out at me at the local library. Let the restructure begin is my call.
