On February 1, the Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) joined with India’s Economic Research Foundation (ERF) and the Heinrich Boell Foundation to launch the “Triple Crisis Blog.” The blog brings together sixteen economic analysts from nine countries to provide global perspectives on the crises in finance, development, and the environment. ”
As described on the Triple Crisis Blog:
The world is experiencing three simultaneous crises in finance, development, and the environment. A number of economists are questioning the mainstream narratives and analyses of these crises. Some of us have joined to create Triple Crisis blog to contribute to a more open and global dialogue around these three crises: about how they interact, and how they can collectively be solved.
The aim of this blog is to provide additional exposure for the existing work of a network of economists who have been working on these three integrative crises. But more importantly, the blog itself will aim to generate a dialogue in a way that has an exponential effect in terms of influencing policy-makers and the broader public.
The project is grounded in an analysis that holds that the crisis:
- challenges the dominant economic schools of thinking
- urges a more integrative approach beyond the stabilization of the financial markets, especially integrating the challenges of the environment and development crisis
- demands a knowledgeable debate beyond the existing circles towards new alliances and
- works toward solving the problems the global economy confronts in an environmentally sound and globally just manner.
