Research

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, along with certain agreed protocols. The research is carried out under the rubric 'associative economics' as a contribution to public debates (see Publications). It is of primary concern that money should follow and not dictate research. See Funding for details of how to support this work.

A particularly important aspect of our research work concerns the meaning, nature and teaching of financial literacy, especially for young people. Our financial literacy page(s) look at this in more detail, but an overview of this topic as regards Waldorf schools is available here.
