Count Care In: An Introduction to Social Wealth Economic Indicators

Wednesday, November 9, 2016 11am-noon Pacific

A FREE 60-minute webinar introducing a new balance sheet to measure what really counts- and how the economy will really work when we use Social Wealth Economic Indicators as the basis for sounder policies and better lives.

Find out how SWEIs provide the evidence-base you need to make the case for caring policies such as paid parental and sick leave, caregiver tax credits, better pay for care workers and educators, and increased investment in early childhood care and education.

Read more about the Social Wealth Economic Indicators and watch the November 12, 2014 online SWEIS launch event here.

The bottom line is, we simply can’t afford to have the U.S. lag behind other developed countries, and we really feel like SWEIs are the right measures in place, beyond those traditional economic measures, to get us on the right track

...we need SWEIs, to be able to talk about the material implications of not accounting for the family care needs of 21st century families.

You can get a lot more done with data than you can with theory, and I think these SWEIs are going to be tremendously important

SWEIs show that the return on investment in early childhood education is large and an essential part of our national investment in human capital.
