GOVERNMENT ECONOMISTS FOR NEW ECONOMIC SYSTEMS (GENESYS)
Thursday 4 November, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CET)
New analytical and systems-oriented approaches and integrated policy approaches are required to understand and manage inter-connected systemic issues.
In a Systemic Recovery from Covid-19, as governments are forced to apply cross-disciplinary and integrative economics to the formulation and implementation of policy, it will become increasingly necessary to build new analytical capabilities and narratives within governments.
In moving from analysis and diagnoses of systemic challenges to policy alternatives, the New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC) Unit at the OECD has establishedGovernment Economists for New Economic Systems (GENESYS) as a platform for debating, experimenting and discussing policy alternatives and the analytical approaches which underpin them.
