MINE – The bridge between environment and economy Sun, 18th October 2020, 5:00 pm Malte Faber, Marc Frick & Reiner Manstetten In dialogue A group of scientists at Heidelberg University is dedicated to the interplay between nature and economy. “MINE” stands for “Mapping the Interplay between Nature and Economy”. The focus is on fundamental concepts such as time, thermodynamics, evolution, homo politicus and justice, thus creating a new picture of economic activity within nature. The prevailing approach of mainstream economics, which views nature as a subsystem of the economy, is thus replaced by a broader and more integrative frame of reference. In the working group led by economist Malte Faber, scientists from the fields of physics, mathematics, philosophy as well as economics participate and contribute their findings to the field of environmental economics. A discussion about the findings of interdisciplinary environmental research over the last 40 years. The event will take place hybrid at the DAI Heidelberg and online.
