Deep in a recession and with scary ecological scenarios looming, now may be the ripest moment we’ll ever have to power-shift global capitalism onto a new path. Adbusters #85 asks economics students around the world to join the fight to revamp Econ 101 curriculums and challenge the endemic myopia of their tenured neoclassical profs. Read a few articles, download the Kick it Over Manifesto (and other posters) and whack them up in the corridors of your campus. Make sure your university is at the forefront of the paradigm shift from neoclassical to ecological economics now underway.

The Slow Food Revolt

The frenetic pace at which we’re forced to live disrupts our natural habits.

Post- Pythagorean Economics

Moving from cold, hard to fuzzy, nonlinear logic.

Confessions of a Radical Prof

I teach students to repudiate the false god of money and the prevailing economic religion of the market.

When the Going Gets Tough

Economists go very quiet.

 

III - Meet the Mavericks

 

IV - Your Place in the Revolution

Hey G20: Slow Down Fast Money With the Tobin Tax
By focusing on regulation and bonuses, are world leaders missing the point?

The New Spirit of Economics

Economics is entering a Nietzschean period of creative destruction … tectonic mindshifts are underway.
