    Economia - The Limited Edition

    The online festival about economy, without the economists (on stage)


Economia – The Limited Edition presents unexpected and playful approaches looking at the foundations of our economy, establishing a fresh point of view on the notion of value and economic growth. The festival is a laboratory of ideas; a place where, for a while, we can step out of the existing frame and approach economics in an unexpected, playful and fundamental manner. The program consists of a series of online lectures, debates, game sessions, an exhibition and a conference from June 25th until October 31st.

    Since the outbreak of the financial crises in 2008 and the pandemic more recently, the uncertainty about the effectiveness and validity of the neoliberal model increased considerably. Economics, in its present form, provides no solution to issues of climate change and social inequality. It cannot help us organize social alliances, raise public interest or develop long-term prospects. Its results no longer appeal.

    In order to be able to challenge our economic system, humanity needs more intuition, holistic awareness and multidisciplinary thinking. Economia – The Limited Edition invites everyone to critically explore how to invert the paradigm of unlimited growth and reclaim economy as we see fit.

    The Confusionist Movement Wants You!

    8-9 PM Live on YouTube and Facebook
    Keynote by The Yes Men

    (#Re-designing Infrastructures)

    After thousands of years of obscurity, a secret society of Tricksters is going public. The Confusionists celebrate the power of confusion – a state of mind that opens doors to change if used for good. The society was based on the idea of confronting power using the methods of the Trickster – a universal archetype that appears in every culture.

    The Confusionists are transforming from a secret society into a movement – inviting new members to confront the increasing abuse of confusion by those in power all over the world.

    Stay tuned for more information and announcements!
