Cheryl welcomes Riane Eisler, bestselling author of The Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics; The Chalice & the Blade, & The Power of Partnership.
Friday January 12, 2018 10:00 am Pacific Time
Riane’s story begins in Austria, where as a small child she and her family fled from the Nazis. This trauma led to her quest to understand why horrible things like the Holocaust can happen – and what we can do so they do not happen again. Today she is an eminent social scientist, attorney, author, & social activist.
Riane recognizes, “Our nation & our world are hungry for new ways of thinking.” We can be a sympathetic world by creating “caring societies” working through the economic system. “…as long as caring is off the economic scale, it’s not realistic to expect more caring government & business policies.” Riane emphasizes “Partnership Politics” – it takes us out of conventional political conversation. It is not religious vs. secular, right vs. left, Eastern vs. Western, capitalist vs. socialist, etc. It is focus on long-term policies foundational for the more peaceful, equitable, & environmentally sustainable world we all want & need.” Having a hard time imagining this? Well, step up. It’s time for audacious action. Join Cheryl Esposito & Riane Eisler to explore the audacity of caring economics.
