An Economy of Meaning - or Bust
It's not often that a scientist gets to use the words love, creativity, and wisdom in a paper, especially when writing about economics. Perhaps that's because economics, the dismal science, is obsessed with dismal systems - make that abysmal systems, relative to need.
To be clear, I'm not speaking of the specific policies of the US, the EU, China, the World Bank or others. I'm speaking of dominant economic systems as wholes - especially their underlying conceptual models (macro and micro) and the worldviews upon which they are based.
