Human Development after the Economics of Growth
The current political-economic crisis calls into question the viability of traditional economic responses premised either on large-scale public policy intervention or on neoliberal policies of market-directed resource allocation and price-setting. All too often both of these approaches advance the objective that improvement in the human condition is best accomplished through economic growth rather than human development. Instead, third-way strategies are emerging that both challenge national and state-level policy expertise while simultaneously rejecting calls for even more market deregulation. Some of these alternative responses include grassroots development projects; democratic control over resource allocation, production and distribution; social enterprise; and community-based economic systems. These alternative approaches also call for evaluation methods and criteria different from those used to measure economic growth.
While we welcome the submission of proposals on all topics in social economics we especially encourage papers from researchers that address the proposed panel theme and related topics in social economics.
Please submit a copy of the paper title and abstract (up to 250 words) to Bruce Pietrykowski, Midwest ASE Regional Director: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than October 16, 2012.
