    Economics for a Post- Covid 19 World

    The global health pandemic has laid bare the flaws of mainstream economics. It’s time for a paradigm shift.

    The global health pandemic has exposed major flaws of the dominant economic paradigm that defined public policy in the western world for the last four decades. While governments have intervened with massive rescue packages to save it, the fact that mainstream economics has failed the masses and pushed the planet to the brink of environmental disaster is too obvious and can no longer be ignored. In this 5-session course, Alanna Hartzok will present an alternative framework that places justice, shared prosperity and environmental sustainability at the center of economic policy.

    Alanna is co-founder and co-director of Earth Rights Institute. She is the author of The Earth Belongs to Everyone which received the 2008 Radical Middle Book Award. She has given lectures and seminars on how to structure public finance and tax policy to address issues of wealth distribution, the environment, infrastructure, education and peace.

    Alanna’s specific approaches include fair land tenure and public finance from a local-to-global framework. Under contract with the UN HABITAT’s Global Land Tool Network, she developed an online course and training program that had nearly 900 people enrolled from 95 countries.

    Martin Luther King and Henry George

    In this lecture on the principles of political economy embraced by Martin Luther King, Jr., Edward Dodson examines Henry George’s influences on King’s views regarding the causes of income and wealth inequality existing in the United States and other societies. King came to understand that other systemic factors beyond racism had to be addressed before anything approaching equality of opportunity could be achieved.

  • Economy and Society in Post-Socialist Realm: The structural problems of the past and the persistence of the new

    Economy and Society in Post-Socialist Realm: The structural problems of the past and the persistence of the new

    The economies of post-socialist Eastern Europe and Former Soviet Union (EE/FSU) rarely appear on today’s economic monitors. In the general media, we usually hear about them in a political context and in the business media only from a perspective of investment’ risk assessment. Yet, these economies are dynamic, vibrant, and in many ways have gained significantly since the 1990s liberalization reforms. Still, many of the structural problems, such as limited job growth, lacking industrial diversification, outward migration, remoteness from the major foreign investment and trade routes, persist today as a characteristic mix of external and internal determining factors. The COVID-19 crisis of this year has added another layer of social and economic pressures. In this lecture Dr. Aleksandr Gevorkyan will review some of the main aspects shaping the sustainable development prospects across smaller EE/FSU economies and discuss some of the possible policy directions.
