The Future of Economy | Development 56.2 is out now!

** Development 56.2 'The Future of Economy' is out now!

Whether one views a ‘crisis’ as a symptom of underlying psychological trauma, or a reflection of cognitive dissonance, or a justification of political unappetizing recipes, it is fair to say that the global economic system as well as its foremost champion, the discipline of mainstream economics, are in a state of crisis (Tariq Banuri, 145-148).

What role will rising inequality, recurrent crises, and social frustrations play in the future of the economy?

SID journal Development Issue 56.2 'The Future of the Economy' seeks to take a closer look at the crisis in economics and the future of the economy. It builds upon the previous issue (Volume 56, Issue 1), which looked at the future of development in the light of the persistent environmental and economic crisis, the slow pace of global policy development, and the weakening of the developmental state.
