The description of "social economists" below is quite interesting.
Have any Marxians engaged and critiqued this perspective?
In solidarity, Jerry

Social Economics: A Paradigm for a Global Society
Eleventh World Congress of Social Economics
Albertville, France
June 8-11, 2004

The Association for Social Economics has scheduled its Eleventh World
Congress of Social Economics for June 8-11, 2004, at Hotel Millon in
Albertville, France. The general theme will be "Social Economics: A Paradigm
for a Global Society." It is not necessary to be a member of the Association
to participate in the Eleventh World Congress. We hope that non-members will
be interested in joining the Association.

Social economists think about economic affairs in ways substantially
different than mainstream economists. Social economists view the economy as
a social, cultural, and political institution. Social economics questions
the traditional assumptions of homo economicus, rational economic man, and
recognizes the interconnectedness of people's life and work-both paid and
unpaid.  The Association for Social Economics (www.socialeconomics.org) was
founded in 1941 to challenge the emerging dominant paradigm of neoclassical
economics, to broaden the scope and methodology of economics, to encourage
the pursuit of economic justice, and to inspire research and analysis on
policies to eradicate poverty, unemployment, hunger, inequality, and promote
an economy that values human beings and allows them to live with dignity.

Proposals for the World Congress may include:  (1) individual or coauthored
papers; (2) entire sessions of 4 papers; (3) roundtables of 4-5 persons on a
particular topic; and (4) pedagogical sessions on teaching in the social
economics tradition. The editors of the two journals of the
Association-Review of Social Economy and Forum for Social Economics-are
especially interested in papers suitable for publication. There will be no f
ormal discussant assigned to papers/sessions. Instead, we encourage
participation and discussion among the panelists and participants. We
encourage historical, theoretical, empirical, and policy papers. We are
particularly interested in research that will help to develop a social
economics paradigm. What assumptions would a social economist make in theory
building? What methodological tools would be used? What is the relationship
between social economics and other heterodox economics approaches, including
economic sociology? How can social economics guide policymaking? teaching?
Topics for papers/sessions could include:

  economic justice
 economic sociology
 values & ethics in economics
 alternative development strategies
 economic thought & methodology
 health & welfare
 inequality, poverty, & discrimination
 economics of war & peace
 gender, race-ethnicity, & class
 supra-national institutions & trading blocs
 labor standards in a global economy
 EU social policy
