Paradigm Shift in Economic Thinking

SEPTEMBER 28, 12:00

Each economic epoch develops its own economic philosophy and worldview. Modern revolutionary and breakthrough economic and social transformations have become a powerful sign for dynamic changes in the behaviour of economic entities, resulting in a dramatic update of the scientific image of objective economic reality and a paradigm shift in economic thinking. Understanding the essence of these extremely complicated processes, as well as new opportunities and ways to put them into practice, is a skill that everyone should master. Therefore, in the panel discussion, we will discuss the following issues:

  • Changes in our perception of the economy under the influence of the coronavirus crisis

  • Modern labour market: gig economy and new workforce

  • New model of state and economic policy: rejection of stereotypes

  • Paradigm shift in economic education under increased turbulence and unpredictability in economic development.
