Susan Carter on Blog Talk Radio

MA in Interdisciplinary Studies interim chair Dr. Susan Carter joined Dr. Riane Eisler for a discussion on Blog Talk Radio, hosted by Marylhurst student Cathy Bennett, on October 4, 2012.

Social scientist, attorney, author and social activist, best known for her international bestseller The Chalice and The Blade, Eisler joined Carter and Bennett for an in-depth discussion of Caring Economics in Partnerism—the Real Wealth of Nations.

This is the first in Cathy Bennett's 2012-13 series in which she will focus on leadership — in particular, servant leadership and the ways in which leading through serving others impacts our world.

About this episode, Bennett writes:

This show focuses on the importance of taking a long hard look at what we value in economic terms. Why should our national productivity, and thus what we measure success by, be measured by the current GDP/GNP, gross domestic and national products, when these indicators do not represent what we truly value—family, community, equity, caring? Do we value plumbers over those who provide our child care when we are at work? The difference in pay sure seems to suggest so.

According to Dr. Eisler, our current economic policies and practices often create scarcities rather than meeting our needs, and mostly because of cultural beliefs that influence what we believe is or is not valuable. We will take a look at some of those cultural beliefs and what they claim we should value. The good news is that we can choose to change what we believe.
