Progressive economists and social scientists should research an economy that works for working people. Productive and reproductive labor are the driving forces of society. Recent debates on labor shortages and the care crisis emphasize that centrality, at the same time the literature consistently shows that inflation, the climate crisis and political polarization over-proportionally impact workers, the unemployed and those primarily performing unpaid care labor. 

This year's Young Economists Conference fosters debates on the dynamics and inequalities of labor, current realities as well as proposals for future changes. A thorough and multi-disciplinary analysis can provide a realistic understanding of the economy and the groundwork for necessary change.  

The Chamber of Labor Vienna, the Chamber of Labor Upper Austria, the Society for Pluralism in Economics Vienna and INET’s Young Scholars’ Initiative as well as many partner organizations will host the 13th Young Economists Conference on September 26 and 27, 2024 in Vienna, Austria.
