"In what direction is our economic system heading ? Where are our societies that suffered violently with the turmoil going? How did we get here? How to react?
The current situation not only reveals an economic crisis, but also a profound intellectual crisis, that of economic thinking. The causes of this crisis are many, the solutions among others must rely in theoretical, practical and policy innovation. Yet there is an institutional issue which blocks the creativity with which a fast and simple political response could take place. A solution that would immediately restore vitality in the reflection on the economic and social affairs of our time: the creation of a new section of the National Council of Universities (CNU) to develop a different way of thinking about the economy."
