Hey all you cultural creatives and heterodox thinkers,
This book breaks the mathematical spell of mainstream economics and infuses it with some much-needed improvisational jazz. It features thinkers, ideas and models – bionomics, psychonomics, degrowth – that have been purged from the leading econ departments across the Western world.
We hope it riles you up and catalyzes a revolt against the suicidal formalism they are currently being taught. A number of such campus revolts – especially at Harvard, University of Paris, Oxford, Cambridge, Chicago – could trigger a larger uprising against the keepers of global economic orthodoxy.
Want to be part of this revolution in economic science?
THIS IS THE PLAN:
Put your university at the forefront of a monumental shift in the theoretical foundations of economic science, now underway. If you can overhaul the economics department at your school, then eventually, together, we can shift the paradigm. History shows us that this is exactly how revolutions in thought have happened in the past. Students, it is in your power to shift the theoretical foundations of economic science.
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
Bring analysis to action with this easy step – converge upon Kickitover.org, download a poster, print it, and post it in the corridors of your campus and beyond. We're aiming to ignite a raging meme war not just on campus, but across the entire mindscape . . .
Students, imagine how your profs will respond when you start demanding answers to questions such as these: How do you measure progress, Mr. Professor? How does climate change factor into our study of economics? Is economic progress killing the planet? Does economics suffer from physics envy . . . is it even an exact science?
Let's pull off the ultimate jam for the fate of humanity . . . A paradigm shift in the theoretical foundations of economic science!
Now go to Kickitover.org and start jamming!
At last we’re in Winter. It’s the year 2047. A worn scrapbook from the future arrives in your lap. It offers a stunning global vision, a warning to the next generations, a repository of practical wisdom, and an invaluable roadmap which you need to navigate the dark times, and the opportunities, which lie ahead.
