Recording from the talk of Professor Luigino Bruni, entitled "Toward a Vegetal Economic Paradigm", on December 2nd, 2022.
Just Sustainability Transitions Seminars are organized by the Environmental Justice Program, Georgetown University.
Abstract: «Imagining, first, and then implementing an effective shift toward a new, green, and sustainable economic paradigm that safeguards the commons is required if humanity wants to survive and prosper. This commentary proposes a mission statement for a new transdisciplinary and long-run research endeavor to redefine homo economicus by letting him wear a new mask (the Latin meaning of persona). It also introduces a provocative definition of 'Vegetable Economics', a new economic paradigm that takes inspiration from plants to design economic institutions».
