Alternative Economics Debated in Copenhagen

As part of the Copenhagen Art Festival, on September 15:th a debate was held on economy and alternative economic practices with artist Kalle Brolin (one of the initiators of the Sunshine Socialist Cinema), chairman of Landsforeningen for Økosamfund Ditlev Nissen, Die Zeit journalist and editor Thomas Fischermann, and economist at Danmarks Nationalbank Niels Peter Hahnemann. Moderated by Judith Schwartzbart. The brief read:

“What is our economic reality? What views characterize the different economic agendas? What are the current considerations with regard to economy and alternative economic practice? How can we think economy in the future? And what economic communities can we and do we want to develop?”

Thomas Fischermann argued for the necessity of economic growth but using other standards of measurements, whereas Ditlev Nissen argued for a voluntary reduction of consumption. Look for both of these guys online.

And the Sunshine Socialist Cinema was introduced to a Danish audience.
