The Midas touch – be careful what you wish for
7th July @ 6:15 pm – 7:30 pm
A special Vaughan Open Research Forum for the annual Cooperative Fortnight
The Forum addresses why business and organisational studies are so neglected by universities and other education institutions. It considers how such narrow thinking has taken over most aspects of our society and why this is a problem.
The Forum will draw on Aristotle, Karl Marx, Karl Polanyi, E.F.Schumacher and Amartya Sen to discuss the difference between exchange and use values, socially disembedded and socially embedded markets. It examines how we might create the conditions for human and planetary flourishing.
