There is an urgent need for new thinking about global systems, in particular about the main driving force of globalization: the world economy.
The 21st century will be a period of unprecedented global challenges – instability of financial markets, global environmental change, large-scale demographic shifts, and more. The famous saying of Einstein’s – that we cannot solve problems with the thinking that generated them – is particularly relevant in the face of these challenges. There is an urgent need for new thinking about global systems, in particular about the main driving force of globalization: the world economy.
This conference is organised by the European research network Global Systems Dynamics & Policy, the Institute for Economic Thinking and Financial Times Deutschland to foster the transition from the thinking that generated the global challenges of our times to a new thinking that shall help decision makers and the wider public to cope with them.
The study of global systems can and must advance in a dialogue between the community of scholars investigating them and the wide variety of stakeholders involved in them. The conference will offer a major opportunity for such dialogue.
