WORKSHOP

Economic DEVELOPMENT IN TIME OF CRISIS: PROBLEMS, SOLUTIONS AND SUSTAINABILITY.

 

Track Chair:

Josè Rodolfo Hernandez Carrion

University of Valencia (Spain)

Background:

The guiding vision of economic growth poses several challenges to researchers, evaluators and economists approaching some kind of Conscious Capitalism: that reflects and leverages the interdependent nature of life and business; moving from a conspicuous consumption to a calculated consumption; re-measuring wealth redefines economic growth and sustainable development; redefining the economic policy goals if "Growth is Dead"; including future generations perspective and their trade-offs; why don't a whole lot more money make us a whole lot more happy?

Scope:

This track will bring together researchers and practitioners to share their experiences and gain greater insight into the prospects and challenges of debating metrics and measures of economic growth in a systemic globalised economy striking a delicate balance.
