The Caring Economy Campaign, a coalition of over 100 organizations led by Dr. Riane Eisler, will launch a new measure that goes beyond GDP -- “Social Wealth Economic Indicators” (SWEIs).

SWEIs are unique in showing where the US stands against other developed nations in investing in care for people, to build the human capital needed for economic competitiveness in our new technological age. SWEIs also demonstrate the connection between the status of women and both quality of life and economic success.

Caring Economy Campaign will launch their new economic measures at an online panel discussion, via Google Hangouts, on November 12, 2014 10:00am PT / MT / CT 1:00 pm ET.
