Even in conservative circles, distrust has grown about the ability of capitalist economic methods to handle the biggest ecological and socio-political challenges of the 21st century.  The accumulation of massive wealth, whilst at the same time impoverishing and driving into debt a large part of the global population and the reckless destruction of planet Earth, are not aberrations of current politics, rather they are necessary components of a system based on increasing capital.  In this Forum radically new economic methods will be outlined as well as including the question of how to design the road map to get there.  Can we move Europe towards a solidarity economy, in which the guiding principle of economic trade is for the common good instead of profits?
