Example text

Letablier’s (2003) case study of child care provision in France is an excellent example of how the value of care can be generalized to the level of a whole society. Most Western nations, however, put higher priority on the health of the economy and the availability of employment than on the provision of child care, health care, or other forms of social protection (with the understandable rationale that a healthy economy and good jobs are needed first to make the rest possible). Thus, there is still a long way to go in establishing the value of care at a broad cultural level where every citizen and every organization feels a responsibility for taking care and giving support to care as a public value.
