Who’s Counting? Marilyn Waring About Sex, Lies and Global Economics
Director: Terre Nash Producers: Kent Martin, National Film Board of Canada
(94 minutes) Canada
With irony and intelligence Marilyn Waring demystifies the language of economics by defining it as a value system in which all goods and activities are related only to their monetary value and monetary exchange with the result that unpaid work, usually done by women, is unrecognized and activities that may be environmentally and socially hazardous are regarded as productive. Waring maps out an alternative economic vision based on the idea of time as the one thing we all have to exchange.
