The International Panel on Social Progress gathers more than 300 scholars preparing a synthesis on the perspectives for improving societies in the coming decades. This talk will present key messages from the first draft of the report (there is something after capitalism as we know it) and reflect on the merits and limitations of this initiative.
Marc's main research interests are welfare economics, social choice theory, public economics. His research on normative and public economics and theories of distributive justice has focused in particular on the analysis of equality of opportunity and responsibility-sensitive egalitarianism and on seeking solutions to famous impossibilities of social choice theory.
OBS! This seminar will take place on a Tuesday at 10.30–12.30.
Marc is one of the initators of the grand project International Panel on Social Progress (IPSP) which unites prominent researchers from all over the world. See him explain what it is about here:
