Special Issue on: “Can a Pluralist Economics Education Bridge the Gap to Reach Planetary Sustainability?”
This special issue calls for using scenarios, anticipatory thinking, models and other techniques, to provide
actionable steps forward so that we can define, conceptualize, and bridge these gaps. This ‘how-to’ set of papers will provide a working map for policymakers, teachers, students, and ordinary citizens.
Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:
• How large are these gaps and how do we define, measure, and conceptualise them?
• The bridges that faculty and educational institutions can construct to surmount these gaps?
• The obstacles preventing recognition of these gaps and the construction of effective bridges?
• The role of neoclassical economics in fomenting and cementing these gaps
• Specific policies to provide a critical way forward
• The role of pluralism and economics education
• Specific actions to bridge the financialisation gap between the 1% and the 99%
• Specific actions to bridge the gap between the market and the commons
• Specific actions to bridge the gap between developed and developing countries
• Specific actions to bridge the gap between the public sector and private sectors
• Specific actions to bridge the gap between urban and rural, industry and agriculture
• Specific actions to bridge the gap between human societies and planetary systems/services
