6. GLOBAL CROSS-SYNTHESIS: 30 PROPOSALS FOR AN ALTERNATIVE WORLD MODEL

3O articles have been selected. The participants consider them “key propos-als for the preparation of alternatives to the current globalisation model”.

 

I. Preparation of a New Theoretical Paradigm

01. The people have identified seven principles, directions essential for deepening and enhancing the foundations of a new economic paradigm. These foundations are intimately related to the "reconceptualisation" of basic economic concepts. The eight principles are follows:

  • The multifunctionalism of the "productive" activities and work done by women;
  • The elimination of barriers (decompartmentalisation) and the sharing of work and responsibilities;
  • Recognition of the need to conciliate roles and activities and fair sharing of time and tasks;
  • Recognition of traditional know-how and experience acquired outside the sphere of the "dominant" economy;
  • The organisation of production and life on the basis of the time and needs of persons and communities;
  • A hierarchy of priorities that takes into account people's lives and their identities as human beings;
    Transparency in activities at all levels. (02.06.)

02. The university faced with liberal economics. The university must main-tain a fundamental relationship with culture, which means that it must not be an instrument of the market economy. On the contrary, it must safeguard basic knowledge - Universitas. The university must become that privileged place that combines knowledge, teaching, reflection and education; a place where cultures and languages blend, where the intelligence of the public should be given possibilities of seeing, listening, appreciating, criticising and evaluating sciences, the quality of a text, a stage direction, interpretation and work of art. These tools are necessary so that each person can build their own vision of the world. (34.05.)
