Economics Reimagined

 

OtherWise wants to explore alternative economics, focusing on alternative currencies, bottom-up and social entrepreneurship, care, mutual aid, and other alternative economic models. The preparations for a series on this theme were in full swing when the pandemic hit the world. From our home offices, we shared many articles about degrowth, GDP and coronavirus capitalism and organized an event about the latter. For 2022, we want to focus more on these and other topics. OtherWise aims to inspire students by showcasing examples of sustainable and inclusive economic systems, as well as critically assessing the idea that capitalism is the only viable and inevitable economic system. For this, Yannik Hinz, one of our interns, is organizing a capita selecta on Capitalist Realism, taking place in periods 3 and 4. For access to the course material,
