Envisioning the Economy of the Future, and the Future of Political Economy

3-5 juil. 2019
Sciences-Po Lille - Lille (France)

Following the Global Financial Crisis and a decade or more of uneven but sluggish economic performance, the signs are that both economic prospects and the prospects for mainstream economics remain bleak even if the latter has strengthened its hold over the discipline despite what are at most token changes to address its sorely exposed methodological, theoretical and applied deficiencies. As a result, this conference will focus upon how to pursue a better “economics”, a better economy and the relationship between the two. The goal will be to identify the driving forces of the economy of the future and what is changing in the way in which academic disciplines, and in particular the social sciences (sociology, history, geography, political science, law, management, development studies) and various heterodox and political economy traditions within economics, describe, formalise, analyse and conceptualise the economic sphere. Thus, the conference will investigate links between the crises in economic theory and the economic and social crises being experienced across the world – those with an immediate economic content, such as finance, inequality and unemployment as well as some major issues to be taken into account to envision the economy of the future, for example ecology and migration.
