In political and corporate media discourse, the current narrow focus on economic 'wellbeing' as the superordinate goal of our society is distractive and misleading. Economic factors, by themselves, are not relevant to humanity. Economic factors are only relevant if they foster our collective social relationships, our education, our health, our democracies, and our environment(s). The CIW is a tool to inform and (re)focus our dialogue on issues that are important to Canadians and to humanity.
