Buddhist Economics: An Enlightened Approach to the Dismal Science

  • UC Berkeley 820 Barrows Hall Berkeley, CA 04710 (map)

Clair Brown, UC Berkeley Department of Economics

Brown advocates an approach to organizing the economy that embraces, rather than skirts, questions of values, sustainability, and inequality. Complementing the award-winning work of Paul Krugman and Jeffrey Sachs, and the paradigm-breaking spirit of Thomas Piketty and Amartya Sen, Brown incorporates the Buddhist emphasis on interconnectedness, capability, and happiness into her vision for a sustainable and compassionate world.
