2013 IIPPE Annual Conference on Political Economy, Activism and Alternative Economic Strategies
International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy
Fourth Annual Conference in Political Economy
'Political Economy, Activism and Alternative Economic Strategies'
July 9-11, 2013
About the conference
This conference considered the then ongoing economic and political crises. That crisis placed two related questions on history’s agenda:
- In the face of the dismal failure of the continuing, mostly overt neoliberal policies to resolve the deep problems, what alternative economic strategies should be pursued? And a more radical form of that same question, are alternative economic structures and an entirely different system of economic structures and practices necessary?
- The second question is concerns the sorts of actions that must be engaged to move the political process on to a path of alternative outcomes, from mild reforms to major transformation (and the connection between the two).
