In this hour, Fed Reserve Chairman Ben Bernake may wield more power over the economy than anyone else, even though he was never elected. So how did he get so much influence? Washington Post journalist Neil Irwin takes us inside the secretive club of the world´s leading central bankers. Next, do banks really have to rule the world? Not if we use alternative currencies. Bernard Lietaer and Jacqui Dunne say thousands of these different exchange systems already exist to meet people´s real needs - from health care to business transactions to mentoring. Then, we all think we´d be happier with more money, and up to a point, that´s true. But once your annual income hits $75,000, making more money has no impact on your happiness. Elizabeth Dunn talks about how to rethink our relationship with money. After that, Great Britain is one of the first countries to create a national measure of well-being - ´´a gross national happiness index´´ - thanks largely to Lord Richard Layard. He says economics should focus on what makes people happy, and how societies can help those with mental illness..Finally, suppose we thought of the economy in seasons? Economist and futurist Rebecca Ryan says we´d be in winter. She thinks we´re not just in an economic downturn; we´re actually nearing the end of another cycle in American history. But spring is still to come. [Broadcast Date: June 19, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Fleming. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/tbon/130619/rt_tbon_130619_sample.mp3.

The economics of motherhood and the history of circumcision on this archive edition of Fresh Air. Economics journalist Ann Crittenden is a former reporter for The New York Times. She´s the author of the new book The Price of Motherhood: Why the Most Important Job in the World Is Still the Least Valued. In the book, Crittenden writes about the cost to mothers when their work is unrecognized and undervalued. For instance, because child care is not counted as labor, caregivers receive no Social Security credits, and as a result they lose out on retirement income. Crittenden spent five years´ research on her book talking to economists, sociologists, and mothers. Author David Gollaher is president and CEO of the public policy group California Healthcare Institute and is the author of Circumcision: A History of the World´s Most Controversial Surgery. Cantor Philip Sherman is a mohel who performs the Jewish rite of circumcision on the eighth day of a baby boy´s life. In his 22-year career he´s performed about 9,000 circumcisions. His grandfather was also a mohel. (Original broadcast date: February 14, 2001) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Gross.
