By presenting political choices as market necessities, they have subverted public debate about what economic policy changes are possible and are or are not desirable. This new venue intends to promote discussion of economic reform that is not limited to the one ideological point of view. - Erik S. Reinert Development and Social Goals: Balancing Aid and Development to Prevent 'Welfare Colonialism' - Matthew McCartney Game Theory: a Refinement or an Alternative to Neo-classical Economics?

We are compiling a directory for the UK Environment Agency (a public body in the UK which seeks to protect the environment) of international researchers (at doctoral level and above) who are actively working on: · issues relating to bounded rationality and models of behaviour which go beyond the standard neoclassical models · in the fields of behavioural, institutional and experimental economics or psychology where it is being applied to economics or organisational behaviour, · and in particular where this work has direct relevance to policy makers. The main aim of compiling this database is to give the Environment Agency contacts in the international academic community and a better understanding of the research that is presently being conducted across the world. The directory will also be made publicly available so that researchers are aware of who is working on different areas and can make contact with one another. If you would like to be included please fill in the short on-line form (which takes only 3 - 4 minutes) at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=79693869078. This directory is being compiled by nef (the new economics foundation). nef is an independent think-and-do tank that inspires and demonstrates real economic well-being.
