The Economics Conference promotes research into economic life from an associative point of view. 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 Dissemination). It is of primary concern that money should follow and not dictate research. See Funding for details of how to support this work.
