Economics Seminar Series-Seminar #4 "Mind-sets, Beliefs and Outcomes"

Venue : TERI University
Date : 9 November 2017

Summary

Speaker: Dr. Amit Thorat, Centre for the Study of Regional Development, JNU

Well being outcomes are more often than not a consequence of mind sets and human behaviour. How people make decisions and interact with others depends largely on there beliefs and perceptions. So what explains the observed differences in well-being outcomes across social groups? In the four studies being presented here the first highlights the differences in static as well as dynamic measures of well being (poverty) across social groups in India despite growth and income increases and why people are becoming poor and escaping poverty at the same time.

The remaining three studies shed light on the prevailing nature of mind-sets and how these might be effecting development, economic and social outcomes for people at large and specific communities or groups in particular. The first amongst these documents the depth and spread of the practice of untouchability in contemporary India. The second examines what might be the reasons for wide spread open defecation in India and why 60% of all the people who defecate in the open live in India. The third study is based on a unique survey that asked people about their views on gender, inter group marriages etc.

International Conference on Business, Economics & Sustainable Development (ICBESD 2018)

Venue : TERI University
Date : 22-23 February 2018

Summary

In view of the changing scenario of risks, environmental and otherwise, it has become imperative for a paradigm shift in business and economics. We need a development that will have zero impact on environment and should not be at the cost of posterity: sustainable development. In fact, business is being increasingly viewed by all the stakeholder groups involved as a powerful force in promoting the cause of sustainable development. The future lies with firms that internalize stakeholder inclusivity, resource efficiency, and environmental conservation as key elements in their core business strategy and process. However, it is easier said than done.
A plethora of research works are already in place to take up the challenges. Sustainable business or business sustainability is no more that unknown in our economic vocabulary. The efforts have received a new fillip with the declaration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) - the 2030 Agenda by the UN.

In this backdrop, the Department of Business and Sustainability, TERI University, the pioneer institution of international importance in sustainability research, has resolved to provide a platform to the likeminded researchers by hosting its annual international conference: ICBESD2018.

The conference aims to bring together stakeholders including academia, industry, government, to discuss the need, challenges, and roadmap to approach long-term viability of business without compromising on profitability, competitiveness, and sustainable development.
