MARILYN WARING INTERVIEW CLICK HERE

 

The author of a ground-breaking book on the importance of unpaid work says the Treasury’s attempts to find other economic measures than gross domestic product don’t go far enough.

Former MP Marilyn Waring has just published Still Counting, 30 years after her Counting for Nothing drew international acclaim for its analysis of how the global economy relies on the unpaid and voluntary work of women.

She says time use studies here have since confirmed women do most unpaid work, and among men, Māori do more voluntary and unpaid work than other men.

She says more people are now recognising GDP should not be the sole focus of economic focus.

"The old 65-year-old paradigm is being completely interrogated for all its problems and people know we have to do something. So the little book is really to say 'look, people of Aotearoa, let's not let this moment and this reallyportant opportunity go by and leave it to the economists," Ms Waring ssays.

Still Counting: Wellbeing, Women’s Work and Policy making is published by Bridget Williams Books.
