The Economics Conference Fund exists to finance research, publications and its own administration.
The Economics Conference promotes research into economic life from the point of view of associative economics. The focus and topics of research are determined by members of the Economics Conference in accordance with their own sense of what is needed and what they can accomplish, and certain agreed protocols. Responsibility for fund-raising and the related budgets to cover remuneration, travel, venue and other incidental expenses likewise rests with the researchers. The research is carried out under the rubric 'associative economics' as a contribution to public debates.
A range of existing and future publications is available under publications, funded in part by the Economics Conference Fund, on terms whereby a percentage of sales reverts to the Fund.
The work of the Economics Conference entails administration, including the management of its website and maintaining correspondence.
Economics Conference Fund
The Fund receives money worldwide, through fund-raising and donations. It is held in various accounts around the world (see list below) where a local Economics Conference colleague acts as a treasurer. The accounts overall are monitored through a shared spreadsheet so that the treasurers are in effect a circle of trustees. The bookkeeping is coordinated through the use of an overall unit of account called the Hibernia, currently calculated at 1:1 to the Swiss Franc (CHF).
