Exploring Economics – Summer Academy for Pluralist Economics
August 4, 2017 - August 11, 2017
We live in times of unrest. Climate change and environmental destruction; the crisis of the European Union and the rise of right-wing populism; concentration of wealth and casualization, tax evasion and youth unemployment – today’s world is in a mess. We want to do justice to these issues and look beyond the narrow confinements of mainstream economics for solutions.
We have organised 9 workshops which will run in parallel throughout the week. Each workshop focuses on one alternative approach to economics or economic policy and will offer you a comprehensive introduction to the subject matter. The topics are:
- Feminist Economics
- Prosperity Economics
- Philosophy of Economics
- Pluralism in Practice: Multiparadigmatic Economic Policy Advising
- Diverse Economies & Post-Growth
- Inequality Economics
- Political Economy
- Complexity Economics
- Post-Keynesian Economics
