Description of this Book

30 years ago, Marilyn Waring's ground-breaking book Counting for Nothing was released. Waring explained, through meticulous economic analysis, how the success of the global economy rests on women's unpaid work. Counting for Nothing became a phenomenon: it was read and discussed around the world, and even made into a film. Today, many people hope that the shift to a wellbeing approach - moving beyond narrow economic indicators when assessing New Zealand's progress - will mean women's work is finally valued fairly. But what does Marilyn Waring make of it? This short book provides an essential assessment of wellbeing economics from a leading feminist scholar.
