Terre Nash – Who’s Counting? Marilyn Waring on Sex, Lies and Global Economics (1995)

Marilyn Waring is the foremost spokesperson for global feminist economics, and her ideas offer new avenues of approach for political action. With persistence and wit she has succeeded in drawing attention to the fact that GDP has no negative side to its accounts–such as damage to the environment–and completely ignores the unpaid work of women. “Why is the market economy all that counts?” Ms. Waring asks.

In 1975, when she was just 22 years old, she was elected to the New Zealand parliament. She was re-elected three times, and eventually brought down the government on the issue of making New Zealand a nuclear free zone.

When she was chairperson of the Public Expenditures Committee, she perfected what she calls the “art of the dumb question”. Ever since she has challenged the myths of economics, its elitist stance, and our tacit compliance with political agendas that masquerade as objective economic policy.

This film has inspired many people, notably the Who’s Counting Project, to work on human-scale economic alternatives, local currency exchanges, and more humane ways of measuring the quality of life.
