14th World Congress of Social Economics

Social economics, with its focus on social values, social interactions, and ethics, is particularly well suited to provide insightful analyses on the present state of economics as a discipline and on the state of the world economy.

Social economics offers valuable alternative evaluations of economic activity that lead toward a more ethical and sustainable economy and a more relevant economics.
