Nicolà Bezzola

I am Nicolà Bezzola and work at the moment as a social aid representative for HEKS and in this role observe asylum procedures in Bern. I'm also writing for the think tank reatch in the working group "the future and history of work". I've finished my MSc in Economic History at LSE. Between my BSc at the University of Bern, Economics as a major and Social Anthropology as a minor, and my masters I studied Chinese for a year at Wuhan University. My special interest within the field lies on the history of economic thought.

In this short Video Silke Helfrich discusses the basics of commons. It’s an introduction into the essence of commons from a perspective stemming from outside the economic discipline that focuses on social practice. Her perception challenges the economic mainstream’s perception of common goods and goes beyond a purely materialistic conceptualisation of commons.

This panel discusses the role of mathematics and history in economics. Lord Robert Skidelsky and Dr. Ha-Joon Chang advocate for a more prominent role of history and a less prominent role of mathematics within economics. Prof. Steve Pisckhe and Prof. Francesco Caselli defend the dominant role of mathematics within economics. Each of the speakers gives a 10-15 minutes talk advocating his position, before the panel is opened up for Q&A. The discussion is moderated by Prof. James Foreman-Peck.

Economics is dogmatic, monolithic, merely quantitative, highly normative, strongly political, primarily ethical, pseudo-scientific, and manipulative.
