Feminist Economics Resources

Cassie’s (constantly evolving) tenets of feminist economics:

-value primarily exists outside of money

-we must value people outside of their economic productivity

-individualism is counterproductive, but collectivity and community are more efficient ways of producing wealth

-we must distrust standardized measurement, which is based in money/quantitative and not well being/qualitative measures

-value is produced by an expanded form of labor including all people, carework, reproductive work, the work of the earth, animals, etc
