Abstract

March 8, 2017, 4:00 p.m., Senate Room
Professors Grzegorz W. Kolodko and Andrzej K. Kozminski invite you to a debate on the "New Pragmatism versus New Nationalism". Whither the world? Is it unavoidably moving towards a "new nationalism"? Is the greed of those who today have the most resources and power going to win, or will we be able to fairly share the resources and fruits of economic growth? Is the New Pragmatism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_pragmatism) a way to solve the biggest problems of the future world?

The work contains 35 chapters and was prepared under the editorship of Janina Pach, Katarzyna Kowalska and Paulina Szyja. The publisher announces: "The economy of moderation – as a new paradigm – is promoted by prof. Grzegorz W. Kolodko in his numerous publications. The book makes an attempt to explain this phenomenon as well as is giving answers to the question whether this concept is realistic and suitable for implementation. The subject is very important and of great interest, especially since we’re living in the times of severe crises, the huge income inequalities, and increasing environmental contamination. These challenges require the evolution of thinking about the rationality in the economic processes."
