In light of the Covid-19 crisis, the article by the authors of the book "From Resistance to Renewal: A 12-Step Program for Innovation and Inclusion in the California Economy", C. Banner and M. Pastor, debunks the granted assumptions of the neoclassical theory, such as self-interested human behavior, the necessity of inequality and growth, trying to pull the threads between between the new possible foundations of our society, "prosperity, security and community". The point made here is that new socioeconomic challenges must be seen in a new perspective, the one of caring, in which "a commitment to mutuality and to the common good is the right thing to do for both public and economic health".
