Twelfth international conference of the International Society for the Intercommunication of New Ideas (ISINI 2016)
The purpose of the Society is: to foster the discovery and dissemination of new ideas, in particular in economics and other social sciences, to test these ideas and to study the application to problems of the real world. The Society aspires to realize its purpose by creating and upholding an environment where economists meet, consult and cooperate with scholars from other disciplines. The thematic focal point of the conference is "Markets, Money and Democracy". By using this approach, we hope to stimulate research that focuses on a cluster of pressing actual social economic problems. The world economy and its constituent political entities see themselves confronted with a host of problems, of which climate change is perhaps the most extensively discussed. But if we want to preserve or build up a decent and well-functioning society, other areas deserve serious discussion as well. We invite scholars to contribute to an exchange of ideas on relevant subjects, such as: “Democracy and the rule of law”, "The open society”, “Alternative monetary systems”, “Ethics and economics”, and “The future of employment”. The second focal point is "Transdisciplinarity". Ongoing specialization and fragmentation in research thwart scientific cooperation within economic science and even more so within economics and other disciplines. Transdisciplinarity refers to research that bridges the conventional dividing lines. We are looking forward to receiving research papers of this type. Contributions on how to structure and organize academic education in multi- or interdisciplinary studies or settings, are also welcome.
