The Economy to Come
Original title: L’Economie à venir
Two well-known economists exchange about the modern world, looking back to the Enlightenment and deconstructing capitalism. Their dialogue, a mix of philosophy, spirituality, politics, and economics, reminds us that economics is not an ultimate goal.
Gaël Giraud and Felwine Sarr suggest we look not only at macroeconomics in a new light using all the various scientific disciplines to develop notions of relational economics, but also that we change the epistemological structures of society as a whole. They encourage us to look inside ourselves to heal the pains of today’s world in order to open up to differences and dialogue, creating a more welcoming environment. They believe this is the basis of all that is human.
