‘There is another economics waiting be borne. It would take efficiency off the pedestal and stress the importance of alternative measures’, Stephen Marglin, Harvard University. This is one of the quotes from the Beyond Economics Meeting in New York report.
On 29‐31 October 2009 academics, development practitioners and activists met in New York for the launch of Development 52.3 ‘Beyond Economics’ and the policy seminar ‘Responding to the interlocked financial, climate and care crises’. The discussion delved into these concerns by building on the journal issue Development 52.3 ‘Beyond Economics’. The seminar focused on the critique of mainstream neoclassical economic thinking, visions for alternative forms of economies, as well as the new frameworks for sustainable human development.
