Our economic system is driving us towards a perfect storm. We are facing ecological breakdown. Rising debt is threatening a new financial crash. Inequality is pulling societies apart.
For 50 years, the scientific prestige of the Nobel Prize has given authority to economic ideas at the heart of this system. And even though the stark consequences of the 2008 financial crisis are still felt today, these out-dated ideas remain dominant.
We urgently need to reroute society away from this catastrophic path. That starts with fresh economic thinking.
Who are the thinkers and doers finding the economic solutions we need to meet the challenges of the 21st century? Help us find them and celebrate them.
And join the discussion about whether economics, as it stands today, is worthy of a Nobel Prize.
