The MINE website explores the interplay between nature and economy. Focusing on such fundamental concepts as time, thermodynamics, evolution, homo politicus and justice, a new outline of economic activity emerges within nature. The dominant approach of Mainstream Economics, which considers nature as a subsystem of the economy, is thus replaced by a broader and more integrated framework. The visual map and its links between concepts provides an orientation. The visitor can approach the content from their own starting point and follow their own path to discovery. Each concept starts with the historical background and moves on through theory and practice. The research behind MINE began in the 1970s at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, in an interdisciplinary group spearheaded by Professor Malte Faber, including scientists from economics to mathematics, physics and philosophy. The research has contributed to the field of Ecological Economics. MINE is directed at students, scientists and decion-makers. More on http://nature-economy.de/faq/

The article is a formal response to the debate between the economists Diane Coyle and Howard Reed, whose articles were published online by Prospect magazine in 2018. Then, it was taken by Rethinking Economics as representative for the vision of the global network which advocates for changing economics curricula. In fact, it clearly solves some issues within the debate around pluralism by explaining its common misunderstandings among academics and its true - often mislead - meaning.

An essay of the writing workshop on contemporary issues in the field of Nigerian economics: In Nigeria, it appears that there is nothing in the constitution, which excludes the participation of women in politics. Yet, when it comes to actual practice, there is extensive discrimination. The under-representation of women in political participation gained root due to the patriarchal practice inherent in our society, much of which were obvious from pre-colonial era till date.

Der Text klärt zunächst den Begriff der Metaphysik, der sich auch bei Adam Smith finden lässt. Es zeigt sich, dass die Metaphysik ein formales Schema ist, in dem wissenschaftliche Aussagen formuliert werden, ohne dieses Schema selbst zu reflektieren. Die Wirtschaftswissenschaften erscheinen in Forschung und Anwendung als formal exakte Theorie, die der physikalischen Mechanik bis in die mathematischen Details gleicht. Die Mechanik fungiert hier als verborgene Metaphysik.

This brief note explores the possibility of working towards an enlarged self-definition of economics through economists’ study and appreciation of economic sociology. Common ground between economic sociology and heterodox economics is explored, and some of Richard Sennett’s ideas are used as prompts to raise some pertinent and hopefully interesting questions about economics. In particular, the note revisits the question of whether there is a possibility of changing our understanding of what kind of social scientific work falls within the domain of economics proper once we start critically engaging with work conventionally considered to be outside of that domain. In part, the note is intended to offer undergraduate students in economics – and possibly even those further down the road in their education – food for thought about what constitutes economics.

“Economics is the science which studies human behaviour as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses1.” This is how Lionel Robbins came to define economics in the early 1930s and there is a good chance that many of you heard a variant of this definition in your first Economics 101 lecture.

Experimental economists are leaving the reservation. They are recruiting subjects in the field rather than in the classroom, using field goods rather than induced valuations, and using field context rather than abstract terminology in instructions.

In diesem klug auf Fakten aufgebauten Buch zeigt Vandana Shiva, wie eine kleine Gruppe superreicher Einzelpersonen, Stiftungen und Investmentfirmen die Kontrolle über unsere Lebensmittelversorgung, unser Informationssystem, unser Gesundheitswesen und unsere Demokratien immer weiter ausbaut. Die Autorin macht sehr deutlich, dass unser Überleben von der Vielfalt unseres Saatgutes und dass unsere Demokratien von einer aufgeklärten Öffentlichkeit abhängen. Es ist ein sehr leidenschaftlicher, weiblicher wissenschaftlicher Diskurs, der eine globale Leserschaft verdient.
