Sack the Economists and disband their departments
by Geoff Davies
The book will be launched by
Professor Bob Douglas
Professor Emeritus of Public Health and Director of Australia 21
Mainstream economists failed comprehensively to foresee the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-8, widely regarded as the greatest economic malfunction since the Great Depression. Such failures arise from fundamental flaws in mainstream economic thinking and practice.
The subject needs to be remade, using modern systems concepts and modern knowledge of people, societies and the world. More stable economies serving humane societies within a thriving natural world would then be feasible.
Dr. Geoff Davies has had an internationally distinguished scientific career in geophysics at ANU, authoring two books and over 100 papers. He has been exploring economics for over fifteen years, and has previously published Economia: new economic systems to empower people and support the living world.
