Economics for Change

September 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Dialogue between Irene van Staveren & Arnoud Boot

In this kick-off we explore how economics is at the basis of incremental systematic change. How do the global financial and economic system, climate change, human consciousness and social security relate to one another? How do these systems interact and most importantly, how can we – without discarding capitalism in its entirety – transform them?
