EVENT: The Nobel Factor: The Prize in Economics 50 Years On

This invitation is reproduced from an HTML e-newsletter from OPEN Fellow, Henry Leveson-Gower, founder of Promoting Economic Pluralism. For those able to get to London on Mar 12, it promises to be an excellent event.

You are invited to attend:

The Nobel Factor: The Prize in Economics 50 Years On

Tuesday, March 12, 2019 from 7:00 PM8:30 PM
***Cheap early bird tickets (1/3 off) on sale now until 5th March***
This event marks the beginning of a new initiative to use 50 years of Economics Nobel Prize winners to reflect on the impact of prestigious economists on policy and humanity for good and ill. We will be organising an online dialogue including voting, events, webinars and more resulting in a ‘People’s Verdict’. Make sure you are signed up to our newsletter lists here to keep in touch with developments.

We know that although economic theory may be speculative, its impact is powerful and real. Since the 1970s, it has been closely associated with a sweeping change around the world—the “market turn.” This is what Avner Offer has called the rise of market liberalism, a movement that, seeking to replace social democracy, holds up buying and selling as the norm for human relations and society. Our confidence in markets comes from economics, and our confidence in economics is underpinned by the Nobel Prize in Economics. Was it a coincidence that the market turn and the prize began at the same time? This and similar questions will be at the centre of a discussion which will also mark the beginning of an exciting new project of Promoting Economic Pluralism.

Avner Offer will describe the origins and power of the most important prize in economics, explore this and related questions by examining the history of the prize, the history of economics since the prize began, and the simultaneous struggle between market liberals and social democrats in Sweden, Europe, and the United States. His work draws on previously untapped Swedish national bank archives and providing a unique analysis of the sway of prizewinners, He will offer an unprecedented account of the real-world consequences of economics—and its greatest prize. His presentation will be followed by discussion and then a networking reception with wine and snacks.

Avner Offer is Chichele Professor Emeritus of Economic History at the University of Oxford and a fellow of All Souls College and the British Academy.  He was educated in Jerusalem and Oxford. Initially he wrote about land tenure and the economics of war, and published Property and Politics 1870-1914(CUP, 1981), and The First World War: An Agrarian Interpretation(OUP, 1989) as well as many articles. Subsequently he focused on consumption and the quality of life with The Challenge of Affluence: Self-control and Well-Being in the United States and Britain since 1950(OUP, 2006) as well as articles and edited books on reciprocity, well-being, working-class experience, and the social determinants of obesity. Currently he is studying  the transition from Social Democracy to Market Liberalism. Articles have covered Adam Smith and the invisible hand, the economy of obligation, and the American health system. Another strand investigates the links of finance, homeownership, and household debts and assets.  In 2018 he delivered the Ellen MacArthur Lectures in Cambridge on how time horizons define the boundaries between private and public enterprise.

WEBINAR: John Elkington on recalling ‘Triple Bottom Line’ – the term he invented.

The following invitation first appeared in an HTML e-newsletter from Impact Entrepreneur.

John Elkington Virtual Fireside Chat
Wednesday, February 27th at Noon Eastern (U.S.)
Now he wants to recall it…
In a 2018 article in Harvard Business Review, John Elkington, Chairman of Volans, writes: “How often are management concepts subjected to recalls by the people who invented them? It is hard to think of a single case. With this in mind, I’m volunteering to carry out a management concept recall: with 2019 marking the 25th anniversary of the “triple bottom line,” a term I coined in 1994, I propose a strategic recall to do some fine tuning.”

Elkington adds, “So why recall it now? The Triple Bottom Line has failed to bury the single bottom line paradigm. From the outset, the goal was system change — pushing toward the transformation of capitalism. It was never supposed to be just an accounting system. It was originally intended as a genetic code, a triple helix of change for tomorrow’s capitalism, with a focus on breakthrough change, disruption, asymmetric growth (with unsustainable sectors actively sidelined), and the scaling of next-generation market solutions.”

In this live, virtual fireside chat, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker discusses with Elkington the motivations behind his coining of the TBL concept, his perceived failure of the concept to achieve its intended ends, and how the concept can be updated to effectively leverage the kinds of system change necessary to transform business and contribute to the building of an authentically sustainable impact economy.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: GBSN Annual Conference, Measuring the Impact of Business Schools

The following call is reproduced from an HTML e-newsletter sent by GBSN.




Lead the Conversation Around Measuring the Impact of Business Schools



The role of business in society is changing rapidly, especially in emerging markets. An increasing number of companies, large and small, are adopting notions of shared value creation and taking a larger stakeholder view of the firm. There is agreement that businesses can address social challenges effectively and efficiently in partnership with governments. This view is reflected in the explicit incorporation of business as a change agent in the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Compact initiative. Student attitudes also reflect this shift.  More students aim to make a positive impact in the world and are seeking careers that share these values.


In this changing context, the question arises of how business schools can assess their relevance and impact in society at large, including a wider range of stakeholders. This central question of impact assessment forms the focal point of discussion in the GBSN 2019 Annual Conference.


Lead the conversation around measuring the impact of business schools by preparing a session proposal for the GBSN 2019 Annual Conference. 


GBSN seeks a diversity of perspectives for conference sessions across 3 sub-themes in 4 interactive format types.

Conference Sub-Themes:


  • Shifts in management education to reflect economic and societal changes
  • Ways to measure how business schools impact society and the economy
  • Rankings and the impact of business schools in the economy and society


GBSN Membership is not required to submit an application, however special consideration will be given to proposals that include faculty or staff of GBSN Member Schools.


Applicants will receive information about the status of their submission from GBSN by April 19, 2019 at which point additional information and interviews may be requested.



March 22, 2019

REMINDER: Call for Papers for PRME Special Issue of International Journal of Management Education



International Journal of Management Education (IJME)

Call for Papers: PRME Special Issue 

Looking forward: Leadership Development & Responsible Management Education for advancing the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 

Editors: Carole Parkes (Associate Editor IJME) Monika Kolb; Lutz Schlange; Milenko Gudic & René Schmidpeter

In calling for systemic change in business and management education to accelerate progress on the UN Sustainable Development Goals and to sensitize current and future business leaders to the inherent values of sustainability and responsibility, the United Nations Global Compact and Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) emphasize that business and management institutions play a key role in shaping the skills and mindsets of these leaders, and act as powerful drivers of corporate sustainability.

To contribute effectively to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Global Goals, business and management schools must change the way they teach business and leadership, and more systematically incorporate the values of sustainability, ethics and responsibility into their teaching, research, stakeholder collaboration and institutional leadership. Traditional approaches to teaching including linear thought patterns, clear hierarchical roles, and passive students were useful in a time of economic stability, clear distribution of power, and predetermined tasks and work structures. Today, the complexity of societal structures and norms and its precarity requires different competencies and agile thinking that can address the many challenges. These include sectors in transition (banks, automobiles, energy industry), social tensions through inequality and global uncertainties in a solution-oriented and systemic way.

This special issue aims to:

1) Look forward to advancing the implementation of Agenda 2030/ SDGs with Responsible Management Education and Leadership Development and

2) Establish common ground for stakeholders to create partnerships and dialogue through communication and collaboration.

In working towards achieving the SDGs there are a wide range of opportunities for Responsible Management Education and Leadership Development in the fields of curriculum design, rethink learning approaches, provide formal and informal learning settings, build partnerships and empower students and faculty. We understand students as the provider of solutions to the complex economic issues and teaching as one driver of transformation to empower students to implement sustainable and responsible business practises.
