INVITATION TO CONFERENCE "WEALTH OF NATIONS"

7 - 8 June, 11 am – 5 pm SNP, Chamber Stage, Pozorisni Trg 1

Finances and monetary policy are mostly a matter of interest
exclusively of a small circle of devotees. Even the social sciences,
broadly speaking, avoided exploring the mutual relation between
finances and other aspects of social activities. However, with the
serious development of financial crisis some questions, which go
behind the narrow sector of economy and finances, have been emerging.
Having experienced the Great Depression in the 30s of the 20th
century, and its implications for the beginning of the Second World
War, there are many of those who are worried about the further
development of the present state of capitalism's global crisis. The
development of so called criticism of finances, is trying to explore
other models of economies and relations which bypass the so called
monetary ideology and praxis, as dominant form of economic conversion,
within the context of symbolic trade.

Syntax "Wealth of Nations" (Adam Smith) is on one hand, an ironic
theme for today's state of liberal economy in crisis, and on the other
hand, raises a serious question: what really constitutes value? Is it
social interaction, beliefs and fears along with market indexes? To
what extent is money nature or culture? Is money equivalent of goods,
labour, or is it self-referential?
At the conference participants and speakers, including economists,
sociologists, artists, activists, philosophers and culture
theoreticians, will try to answer these questions and provoke a wider
debate on finances, as the social praxis, and its wider implications
in domain of rational and irrational.

Conference Editors: Kristian Lukić and Gordana Nikolić
