Arturo Hermann and I are aleading the conference and we both feel that your voice on current economic, social and poltiical challenges would be invaluable and very relevant for the conference Discussion Forum.

In order to shed more light on our uncertain times and to keep the practise of undertaking pluralist and multidisciplinary research, we encourage contributions from a wide variety of various theories and schools of thought. We would like to invite you to submit something – it could be an extended abstract, or even a short essay, a work in progress or whatever you would like.

We would be honoured to have your voice in this Conference!

The aspects that might be covered include, but are not limited to, the following
interrelated fields:

(I) Analysis of how capitalism, socialism and democracy have evolved in particular situations.

(II) Characteristics and evolution of modern corporations, public action and the related legal, institutional and policy framework.

(III) The legal and institutional analysis of the market at theoretical level and in specific situations.

(IV) The role and evolution of public sector and public spending from various theoretical perspectives (for instance, institutional, Marxist and Keynesian) and/or in specific situations.

(V) The various conceptions of socialism, social justice and democracy ― also considered in the central dimension of ecological sustainability ― and the most suited policies and institutions for their attainment.

(VI) Parallels, with the intention of shedding light on central components of our economies, considering the contributions of Marx, Hilferding, Polanyi, Keynes, Commons and the Veblen-Dewey-Ayres’ pragmatism and institutional tradition.

( VII) Democracy and pluralism in Economics.
