Video recording of the conference “Economics and the Common(s): From Seed Form to Core Paradigm”
May 22 — 24, 2013
The prevailing dogma of market-fundamentalism has increasingly been called into question as the predatory dynamics of the market economy became clear and as its threats to the biosphere have become more acute. Our conference “Economics and the Common(s): From Seed Form to Core Paradigm” seeks to open up some new vistas in politics, economics and culture by exploring the commons as an alternative worldview and provisioning system, as well as a coherent field of inquiry and action. It will convene approximately 240 commoners — researchers, practitioners andadvocates from around the world — to explore the relationship of conventional economics and the commons, showcase key actors and initiatives, and deviseplans for moving the commons paradigm forward.
