Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.
In the words of the famous economist Adam Smith, science exists to enlighten people’s minds. Many recent and important global topics are currently under a veil of darkness and are in need of a broader scientific approach to better understand the processes in motion. Residuals of the 2008 financial crisis are still present in some countries and in the past few years there has been a rise in new political events that have affected large sets of countries. Brexit, conflicts in the Middle East, waves of refugees and outbreaks of terrorism have raised uncertainty in nations’ economies on an unprecedented level. National security, social security, trade flows, labour and capital mobility across countries, shifts in the labour markets, and economic growth in general have all paid the price from these events. Policymakers are unaware what future problems can arise from the current situation or what are the optimal policies to remedy these problems. The urgent task facing policymakers is to transform themselves into effective anticipators of upcoming shocks. They need to develop ideas, skills and innovative capabilities at a new and higher level than before.
The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
To do this, the academic community has to provide research that will confront these particular research questions on a global level. The Conference organizers have deep respect for individuals trying to make a difference and improve policies that contribute to these and general goals of sustainable development.
The new development agenda should carry forward the spirit of active response to changes, seeking an answer to questions what should, and can be done to promote sustainable economic growth.
