Responding to the crisis: beyond economics
He will be joined by leading development thinkers such as David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy: From Phantom Wealth to Real Wealth, and key policy leaders of UN agencies such as Tariq Banuri, leading author of the recent UNDESA report on ‘Promoting Development, Saving the Planet’. They and leading thinkers from around the world will analyze the current financial, climate and care crises, in order to devise sustainable and equitable policy options that will ‘go beyond economics’.
The launch will be followed by a policy seminar on ‘Responding to the Interlocked Financial, Climate and Care Crises’. Held in New York from 29 to 31 October the three days of intense debate will look at alternative visions for development that take us away from the culture of the market to a culture of economics based on the livelihoods and rights of the poor.
