"Adam Smith's The Wealth of Nations provided the first, most influential, and lasting explanation of the workings of modern economics. But with his focus on "the market" as the best mechanism for producing and distributing the necessities of life, Smith's concepts only told part of the story, leading to flawed economic models that devalue activities that fall outside of the market's parameters of buying and selling. The real wealth of nations, Riane Eisler demonstrates, is not merely financial, but includes the contributions of people and our natural environment.
