Public Policy Work: Social Wealth Indicators

When GDP (Gross Domestic Product) keeps rising at the same time that joblessness is dangerously high and childcare and education are slashed, it’s clear that we urgently need new measurements that give policymakers and the public a more accurate picture of true economic health. In partnership with the Urban Institute, CPS is developing new Social Wealth indicators. These more accurate and inclusive measurements provide the missing empirical evidence essential so policies no longer marginalize the majority: women, children and members of racial and other minorities. 

Caring Economy Leadership Program

CPS’ online Caring Economy Leadership Program is prepares participants to join a growing international chorus of voices speaking out for a saner, more practical economic system -- one that acknowledges that the work of caring for people and the planet is the essential foundation of economic success.

People everywhere are hungry for a new conversation about economics.  We invite YOU to help lead the conversation.

The Caring Economy Campaign coalition brings together diverse organizations representing women, children, civil and human rights, caregivers, health care workers, teachers, socially responsible businesses, faith based activists, environmentalists, as well as bloggers, think tanks, thought leaders, and others working to create a more caring and prosperous economy. The website facilitates supports this coalition and movement-building through blog postings, fact sheets, videos, reports, action items, and other resources.

Economics as if Caring Matters
by Riane Eisler, March-April 2012
"In this superb piece, Riane Eisler tries to untangle the limitations of both capitalism and socialism. There is no place for a caring economy in these models -- no value given to caring for our trees or, as emphasized in this piece, our children. New models are needed, and the author presents the beginning of one. If economics moves in any direction, it should be this one." Jeff Madrick, Challenge Editor.
