economics as if people mattered.


about TOES | TOES books | support | contact us 

TOES promotes economics which incorporate the sustainable use of natural resources and the productive engagement of all people in the development of their communities and societies. 

Those who support and work with TOES are convinced that promising and constructive alternatives are available and are being developed and implemented all over the globe. TOES builds on a considerable tradition of theory and practice. An economics constrained by respect for the natural world and human dignity is possible. It is the goal of TOES to promote its further conceptualization and to encourage its elaboration in practice. TOES' major ongoing activity is a yearly forum/exposition held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the world's leading industrial countries - the US, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. TOES also publishes books, occasional newsletters, and maintains contact with TOES-related colleagues in other countries.
