This books brings together scholarly works on the Economy for the Common Good (ECG), both from conceptual and empirical perspectives. The contributions were presented at the first-ever international scientific conference on this topic in Bremen, Germany, organised by the School of Graduate and Professional Studies (Institut für Wissenschaftliche Weiterbildung) of Hochschule Bremen – City University of Applied Sciences and the Research Council of the Economy for the Common Good (Forschungsverein der Gemeinwohlökonomie e.V.) in November 2019. Readers of this book learn that The Economy for the Common Good (ECG) can be considered as a new approach in-line with several socio-economic and political approaches that aim to frame economic activity within ecological and social boundaries.
The interesting book “Economy for the Common Good” by Tim Goydke and Günter Koch explains that this approach is different to others. The ECG aims to embed economic activities into a broader cultural and social context and to link them with the core human values of dignity, solidarity, social justice, environmental sustainability, democracy and transparency. The movement started in 2010 with the publication of the book “Gemeinwohl-Ökonomie” (Economy for the Common Good) by Christian Felber and the presentation of a first version of the common good balance sheet by a group of Austrian entrepreneurs. Since then, the movement has spread from the German-speaking countries to other countries, especially in Europe and Latin America. With this book, English speaking readers can now also gain insights into this economic approach.
