NI528 - A Caring Economy - November/December 2020

Care is what keeps us all going. It's skilled, emotional, exhausting, rewarding work that props up our lives, households, communities and economies. Yet care-work disproportionately carried out by women and then most marginalized, is also massively undervalued and ignored across the world. While growth and profit remain the priority of our economies, care of people and the planet are relegated to the sidelines.
