The conference, titled Paradigm Lost: Rethinking Economics and Politics, took place in the Axica Conference Center adjacent to the world famous Brandenburg Gate.
About 300 scholars, students, journalists, and policy makers convened in the eye of the European economic hurricane to reconsider conventional economic thinking. The challenges posed by inequality, unemployment, climate change, and global financial disarray call for new economic thinking that is open, credible, and relevant in the current world; that offers vision amid uncertainty, and that fosters cooperation where there is fragmentation.
The conference was organized in conjunction with our partners, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC).
