'Political Economy, Activism and Alternative Economic Strategies'
2013 IIPPE Annual Conference on Political Economy, Activism and Alternative Economic Strategies
Fourth Annual Conference in Political Economy - 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).
