Economics Conference

A community of researchers furthering Rudolf Steiner’s contribution to economics in the world at large.

A standing conference within the Social Sciences Section of the School of Spiritual Science, the Economics Conference of the Goetheanum is a worldwide research community that seeks to understand business, finance and economics on the basis of Rudolf Steiner’s economics course (GA 340) and related writings.

Its aim is to make seminal yet concrete contributions to fundamental problems of our time in such fields as price theory, monetary policy and entrepreneurial endeavour. Its meetings, which take place in many parts of the world, and include an annual worldwide gathering, are conducted principally in English but also in the languages of those who take part.

The meetings provide opportunities for independent researchers to share their work and together to derive insights of use in addressing the problems of economic life in the light of spiritual science. While it is hoped that such insights will fructify the teaching, publishing and other practical endeavours of participants, all such activity is undertaken on the direct responsibility of those concerned.

The School of Spiritual Science is responsible for research in the spiritual field, for stimulating and dealing with practical questions and for continuing education in anthroposophically oriented fields of work. Today the university is divided into one general anthroposophical section and ten specialist sections. The work is based on the course in the humanities held by Rudolf Steiner in 1924 for the members of the university as part of their first class. The university has its headquarters and coordination centre at the Goetheanum and its work takes place worldwide in the contexts in which members of the university are active.
