ECONOMICS AS IF PEOPLE MATTERED

Julie Nelson’s impassioned and perceptive work debunks the ingrained notion that our economic lives are separate from our moral values and human relationships. At a time when both political opinions and political solutions are polar opposites, she is critical of those who, right and left alike, see the economy as a machine soaked in self-interest. Things are not as they’ve been so easily painted. Enriched by feminist and humanist perspectives, Julie Nelson rethinks the relationship between self-interest, as the purported realm of commerce and ‘economic man’, and care, usually associated with women and non-economic activities. She argues that if we can free ourselves of 150 years of gender bias in our thinking,  there is space to reconcile opposing views and to dare to imagine pragmatic solutions that involve corporations, non-profits, government, and individual responsibility.
