The greatest problems of our time-- poverty, inequality, war, terrorism, and environ
mental degradation-- can be traced to flawed economic systems that fail to value and
support the most essential human work: caring for people and the planet. Renowned
social scientist Riane Eisler introduces a bold reformulation: a "caring economics" that transcends traditional categories like "capitalist" and "socialist" and offers enormous economic and social benefits. She provides a blueprint for putting this more humane and effective economic system to work.
