Into The Folly Of Value: Reforming Sustainable Finance


Thursday, 1 March 2012

Many critics claim that the problem with economics is that it has no "theory of value". From early economists, such as Smith, Ricardo and Marx, to later economists, pinning value to economics has proved disputatious. In turn problems with understanding value reverberate to problems with money, problems with the long term and problems with sustainability. This conference explored some suggested reforms that touch on value, ranging from new thinking on the international monetary system to better reporting standards to refocused government policies.
