The unpaid work that GDP ignores -- and why it really counts | Marilyn Waring

TED Talks Daily podcast.

In this visionary talk, economist Marilyn Waring seeks to correct the failures of this narrow-minded system, detailing why we deserve a better way to measure growth that values not just our own livelihood but the planet's as well.
