Already in the 1930s, Keyens sustained that the true challenge that needs to be overcome is the reconnection of economy and society in an intelligent and non regressive manner.
After a century and another devastating economic crisis, it is understandable to wonder if a mediation between the modernizing push of progress and the needs of society is still possible.
The populist movements of today – whether guided from above or born spontaneously from the bottom – embody a diffused indisposition that contests blocked social hierarchies, as well as stationary social elevators, concentration of richness that is increasingly evident and that no longer allows for the possibility of the acquisition of well being and security in the same way it was assured in the past.
Nonetheless in a panorama so desolating and confused, the voices of those reclaiming the humanistic side of the economy, a social science that needs to occupy itself with the wellbeing of man in the “interest of stability and social justice”, are not missing.
The focus crosses various visions – ironic, disillusioned, worried – of today’s society, that is founded on economy and in which you’ll drown.
