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 New Pragmatism (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_pragmatism) a way to solve the biggest problems of the future world?

The Scientific Publishing House PWN has published (in Polish)an interesting book "The Economy of Moderation – A Realistic Prospect? New Paradigm of Grzegorz W. Kolodko". 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."
