A human economy builds on these strategies and encompasses broader ideas of solidarity and deep sustainable integration with natural environments. It is pluralistic because it includes everyone, and it offers a path forward when larger systems fail. It is therefore part of a solution for shared human problems, such as the COVID-19 crisis, and requires interdisciplinary research from the perspective of the social sciences, the humanities, and the natural sciences.
We seek existing, under construction or new economies focused on human needs more than the accumulation of wealth or concentration of power. Not least, human economies must be globally inclusive, not mechanisms for the benefit of some countries or regions and the deprivation of others.
