This conference has two aims. First, to focus on the implications of this distinctive narrowing in the scope of economic theory to economic methodology. Second, to explore moral components of economic theory and analysis which could be integrated systematically with analytical thought rather than being treated as mere add-ons.Closing date for abstract submissions: Friday 7 September 2018.
About this book: “Neoliberals hate the state. Or do they? In the first intellectual history of neoliberal globalism, Globalists, Quinn Slobodian follows a group of thinkers from the ashes of the Habsburg Empire to the creation of the World Trade Organization to show that neoliberalism emerged less to shrink government and abolish regulations than to redeploy them at a global level.” Or see all the books on the shelf
About this book: “If we are to reform capitalism we urgently need to rethink where wealth comes from. Who is creating it, who is extracting it, and who is destroying it? These questions are key if we want to replace the current parasitic system with a capitalism that works for us all. The Value of Everything will reignite a long-needed debate about the kind of world we really want to live in.” Or see all the books on the shelf

The book reveals bold new ways to organize markets for the good of everyone.” Or see all the books on the shelf
