Care, capitalism and politics

Kathleen Lynch, 26th November 2020

“Money is the most widely used measure of success and the dominant indicator of competence and value—the great common denominator through which all things are made comparable and measured. Spending time caring for others who are not able to pay a high market rate for care (including children and poorer, invalided adults) begins to appear very unwise, even quixotic, a waste of money-making time.

Yet life depends on care. It is essential for the survival of humanity and the planet.”
