3 Things to Consider when Rethinking Economics
By Dennis Venter
If you are a student, professional or activist thinking outside of the box to address the questions of our time, then this is for you. Today, at Rethinking Economics Australia, we’ve launched a new blog publication; a shared space where we give respect and exposure to people like you. Join us in rethinking economics for a better tomorrow!
How to rethink economics
Rethinking starts by asking the right questions. Here are three things that will send you off in the right direction.
1Technology, industries, products, institutions, policies… all of these things are changing our world.
2Explaining the way you and I respond to these changes is a little bit tricky.
3It is tricky because:
- On the individual level, we are smart and dynamic.
- On the collective level, our lives are linked to ever-changing social and cultural systems.
Given this colorful mess, can we really reduce the individual and all of their dynamic needs to a “representative consumer”? Can we reduce our way of life to a couple of lines in a graph? Can we reduce our world to a bunch of models in a textbook?
Let’s go on a new adventure, outside of the solutions provided by the mainstream. We invite you to share your thoughts with your fellow rethinkers! Together, we embark on a journey through the world of pluralism and beyond.
