Our Topics 2019
Why discuss the topics: Well-being, Growth, Crises?
We aim to discuss diverse approaches to sustainable social and economic development. In the past, economics has seen growth as a matter of output and employment, the higher the better. However, modern societies are increasingly concerned with the well-being of humans in such a system. The global challenges of unstable financial markets, automisation and climate change have led to a shift in perception of what is important. Hence, economic discourse has to be held to create an economy that works for everyone and protects our planet. This is the reason why SHIFTING PARADIGMS 2019 focuses on Well-being, Growth, and Crises.
