All economic frameworks imply a moral as well as a political economy. Moral political economies vary in time and place with implications for the values that dominate the thinking and practice of governments, firms, and citizens. The current moral political economic framework is failing. The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences has already begun the work of building a new framework by bringing together an interdisciplinary and intersectoral network. The new framework will build on contemporary understandings of human beliefs, interactions, and institutions to rethink models of the market and the state, mobilize the values that inspire action, facilitate new forms of sociability, and harness technology for the good of society. This project will contribute to reimagining capitalism and crafting its future.
