Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

Economic Transition in the Anthropocene
University of California, 2019
In this talk, Eric Beinhocker outlines his ideas of how to ensure a just and sustainable future for Humanity: This includes his interesting Russian Doll approach to unpacking 20th-century economics and proposals of new theories to underpin a new economic system.
Eric Beinhocker takes us on an easy to follow discovery journey unmantling the foundations (e.g. moral philosophy and economic theory) of the present economic system (i.e. modern capitalism). By doing so, we realize the relativity and subjectivity of the established set of beliefs (e.g. Neoliberalism). Beinhocker gifts us an open mind to question the status quo.
Comment from our editors:
This is an excellent material for a platform like Exploring Economics, which aims to broaden horizons in regard to the status quo. The talk includes deft summaries of the current economic order and the need for New Economic Thinking and has the potential to inspire and motivate people. It is good e-learning material for both beginners and professionals as it can help to connect and categorize economic terminologies like Neoliberalism and modern capitalism.
