A Project for a New Worldwide, Strategic Methodology for Planning (Under the Sponsorship of a Renovated University of the United Nations)

  • Franco Archibugi


All the chapters of Vol. III of this trilogy are dedicated to the construction of the Planning Accounting Framework (PAF), and to its political management; that volume will also focus on the traces of methods suggested by Ragnar Frisch and the other economists recalled in Vol. I and revisited in the other chapters of Vol. II. The methodological bases of neo-classical economics could be insufficient, and also possibly dangerous, in creating non-tested programming for the managers of applications of the new economic policy itself. With such a critique we can, at most, contest the functionality and validity of the proposed solutions by different economic policies based on the behaviour of uncertain effectiveness—solutions that can suggest actions through erroneous instruments of analysis and forecasts.
