Economic Paradigm Change
The workshop series on Economic Paradigm Change is co-organized by the Global Solutions Initiative, THE NEW INSTITUTE, Prosocial World and INET Oxford.
The workshop series invites major contributors in the development of new paradigms for economics to present and discuss their proposals. These deliberations place special emphasis on the mobilization of resources in the pursuit of wellbeing in thriving societies, now and in the future.
Contributions to the workshop series will be based on an underlying critique of orthodox economics, in terms of its central characteristics: individualism, socially disengaged behavior, ignorance as risk, utility-based wellbeing, and progress as economic growth. The new paradigms call each of these characteristics into question and propose new approaches to economic policies and business practices.
Participants also deliberate on new approaches to the collection of economic data, new methods of analysis, new questions concerning the nature of economic activity, and a new assessment of economic success.
