What forms the bedrock of America's wealth? Home ownership? Small businesses? Wall Street? This program lays out an entirely different economic conception, pointing to the vast amount of unpaid labor and services that keep the rest of society afloat. Riane Eisler, author of The Real Wealth of Nations, analyzes the significance of volunteer work, medical support provided by family members, and other hidden or uncompensated labor. Activist Vandana Shiva sheds light on the nonmonetary contributions of small farmers around the world, while economist Hazel Henderson maps out the place of the "love economy" within the conventional one. Barter is also explored, with the help of Time Dollars creator Edgar Cahn and Barter News editor Bob Meyer.
