The time for a new economics is at hand | P2P Foundation

The time for a new economics is at hand | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In early January I passed out a leaflet to my colleagues at the annual meeting of the American Economic Association in Boston, which brought together more than 11,000 economists and social scientists. The leaflet pointed out the profession’s failure to predict the 2008 financial crisis and challenged economics professors to incorporate new ideas into their teachings. As a self-proclaimed Marxist-feminist-anti-racist-ecological economist and economics professor, I was glad to take this opportunity to protest the lack of pluralism in the profession as well as the weaknesses of mainstream neoclassical economic theory, especially in the currently dominant free-market form.

The Economic Realms

The Economic Realms | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Transfinancial Economics (TFE) is an evolving project nearing basic completion. It should be said that there has been a degree of interest in it from a number of people with economic backgrounds such as Warren Mosler, Andy Dennis, Stephen Monrad, David Axelrod, Trond Andresen (cybernetics expert), Prem Sikka, and the noted autodidact, and futurist Hazel Henderson. In April 2010, TFE was also a subject discussed at a major scientific conference (the ICEME, or International Conference of Engineering, and Meta-Engineering, Florida, USA).

Defending the global knowledge commons - Open Democracy

Defending the global knowledge commons - Open Democracy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

As the global information economy intensifies, voices from the global South have been calling for more coordinated and deliberate work to defend what is known as the global “knowledge commons.” Movements resisting international trade agreements and the patenting of “intellectual property” have been inspired and guided by activists in places like Brazil, India, and South Africa, where strong resistance to TRIPS--or trade-related intellectual property rights agreement--helped keep life-saving medications more affordable and challenged the commodification of knowledge.

Digital transformation is impacting all aspects of our lives. A recent survey by Intel revealed 63% of employees have no longer a traditional office “fixed desk” work environment. About 43% worked from home several days a week. Digital technology is transforming the very nature of work itself: the way we innovate, connect, interact and produce.
