How to achieve truly international cooperation?
Maybe this unfortunate state of affairs is in particular present in economic policy analyses and is less present in fundamental economic research that makes explicit the assumptions of the research.
To apply my thought on the need for a better world economic system: how could we stimulate social scientists to work jointly -- regardless of the interests of individuals and institutions -- on a plan that suggests how the world economic system could be improved?
Obviously, such a plan needs to be discussed democratically, by all nations. And obviously, this should be done in a truly democratic way and not in the current way in which people are degradated and used as a flock of animals who, by voting in elections, serve to legitimise current unequality, poverty and economic and social injustice.
