‘Counting on Marilyn Waring provides a timely reminder of the politics and economics underpinning what, how and by whom activities and outputs are valued. For those concerned with social justice and sustainable futures, this important and powerful book provides an invaluable and practical insight into issues that are in need of greater visibility.’ — Alison Preston, Winthrop Professor of Economics, University of Western Australia

I also write a column for The Huffington Post.
