Description

In this recording of Boston's Other Voice, which aired on March 26, 1989, host Peter Stickel interviews Marilyn Waring, the author of "If Women Counted." Waring is an Australian politician who helped ban nuclear weapons in Australia and lift the ban on homosexuality there. Her book documents her research on the economic, social, and political impact of "invisible people," such as housewives, who's work is not counted toward a nation's gross domestic product (GDP). Waring talks about how the value of a country's resources are determined, including environmental and human resources, and how the constant demand for economic growth dominates that value system.
