A standing conference within the Social Sciences Section of the School of Spiritual Science, the Economics Conference of the Goetheanum endeavours to understand business, finance and economics on the basis of Rudolf Steiner's economics course and related writings. Its aim is to make seminal yet concrete contributions to fundamental problems of our time in such fields as monetary policy, price theory and entrepreneurial endeavour. Its meetings, which take place in many parts of the world, and include an annual worldwide gathering, are conducted in English and 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 responsibility of those concerned.
