INTEGRAL ECONOMY AND INTEGRAL SOCIETY: USEFUL LINKS
Compiled by: Dr. Darja Piciga, Slovenia

Description: Integral Economics_Frontcover PPC.pdf

 

 

I would like to express my gratitude to Prof. Ronnie Lessem and Dr. Alexander Schieffer for their guidance in compiling this list. Many thanks also to Juan Carlos Kaiten, Aashish Khular and Nicole Foss who suggested some texts and animated films on the Western approach to economy. 

Note to the reader: Following urgent need to upgrade integrally the mainstream Western model of economy and finance, and due to the gravity of present economic and financial crisis in our homeland (Slovenia and EU in general), the section of the Western World is richer with items than the other sections of this material.
