Association for Social Economics (ASE) at the ASSA meetings 2015
THEME: Commodities, Commodification and Alternatives to Exchange For the ASE sessions at the 2015 ASSA meetings we welcome proposals for papers on all aspects of social economics, especially those dealing with the process of and limits to commodification. Possible topics include but are not limited to: - What ethical principles guide the exchange of commodities? - What, if any, ethical principles are slighted?hat can be learned from case studies or deep analysis of specific commodities? - How do other processes besides the exchange of commodities play a role in provisioning and in the development of human capabilities? Specifically, what role do self-provisioning, transfers, gifts, and/or indebtedness continue to play in our economic lives? - How do alternatives to exchange complicate our understanding of the motivations involved in economic behavior—including exchange behavior? - Are there limits to commodification of spheres of human interaction? Should there be? - How have people resisted commodification (of labor, land and natural resources, caring, etc.) through collective behavior? - What are the implications of expanding commodification on the natural environment, social and cultural life, or psychological functioning?
