Dear friends,

In Other Words, like so many of our fellow bookstores, has fallen upon incredibly hard financial times.  With the decline in our current economy, we have experienced severely decreased revenue.  If we are unable to raise $11,000 by the end of December, In Other Words will have to close its doors.

caring labor and the economic stimulus

for the Old Mole Dec 1, 2008

As president-elect Barak Obama puts together his economic stimulus plan, a number of feminist economists have proposed that it ought to include investments not just in infrastructure—things like roads and bridges—but also in "human infrastructure," or the care economy. Women have been among those hardest hit by the economic crisis, because women are among the most vulnerable economically. Of the 37 million Americans living in poverty even before the crisis, 27 million are women and children. By making his economic plan friendly not just to the natural environment but also to the human needs so often met by the work of women, feminist economists suggest, Obama can increase both the efficacy and the equity of his economic plan.
