The association „Economy is Care“ is committed to the reorganisation of the economy around its core business, the satisfaction of actual human needs worldwide. The association is based in Switzerland and Germany, with close ties to Austria. „Economy is Care“ sees itself as a part of the worldwide movement for a care-centered economy.

„The Care-Centered Economy – Rediscovering what has been taken for granted“ by Ina Praetorius is the founding essay of our association. It is available here. On this blog you can also find further information in English.

We are looking forward to more contributions to #economyiscare in English! We warmly welcome you to get in touch with us if you need or have further information on a specific topic!

„On the most general level, we suggest that caring be viewed as a specific activity that includes everything that we do to maintain, continue, and repair our world so that we can live in it as well as possible. That world includes our bodies, our selves, and our environment, all of which we seek to interweave in a complex, life-sustaining web.“
