‘Economy’ taken literally means nothing less than managing – or TAKING CARE – of the household. Economy is related to taking care. It is (supposed to be!) an act of CARE-TAKING. Of a household´s needs, of human needs, of the needs of planet earth so the global household can sustain and thrive.
Is this what you see in your surrounding? Is this what economy feels like to you right now?
For some people it does indeed – because that´s how economy can indeed feel like: taking care and being taken care of. By a COMMUNITY. Driven by human values like SOLIDARITY, COMPASSION, JUSTICE.
We still talk about „economic alternatives“. Let´s make alternatives that lead to thriving communities the new normal!
