General Information: The South African New Economics Network (SANE ) is a loose affiliation of individuals and organisations who recognise the central role of economics in modern society, and are concerned about the social and ecological consequences of economics as it is conventionally taught and practised.
S A N E challenges the narrow way in which most economists have tended to reduce people to economic agents, the environment to property, social institutions to markets and progress to growth in production.
S A N E questions the effectiveness and responsibility of the present world economic system in the face of widespread evidence of worsening income inequality, poverty, unemployment, violent crime, environmental degradation, unfulfilling work and disintegration of traditional values and social systems.
S A N E seeks to encourage dialogue on alternative economic theories and practices which are more purposefully designed to promote social equity and justice, community self-reliance and ecological sustainability.
