The issue of economy and morality draws clearly more interest than ever at the moment that Europe is searching to find a sustainable way out of the ongoing crisis.
The audience had the opportunity to listen to the presentations of Dr. Philip Blond, Dr. Luigino Bruni, Mr. Peter Briscoe, Dr. Michael Schluter, Dr. Tomáš Sedláček and Dr. Peter Ester.
All speakers pointed to the moral deficit in our economy at a moment that many people in Europe see and experience the consequences of this lack of values in our economic system.
Over 100 participants discussed with the speakers on the question how values can play again a role in our economy and how ownership and responsibility can be restored. It is clear that the perspective of the human being as a relational being and the value of family and community are fundamental for any future vision for our economy.
The ECPF thanks all the speakers who shared their vision and experience with the audience. The ECPF will continue to support further co-operation towards a new paradigm for Europe’s economy.
