And if you are interested in alternative ways to calculate the value of work, one of the interlocutors on Sunday will be Ruth from the New Economics Foundation, a think tank that has recently published a report called A Bit Rich. Calculating the real value to society of different professions, which challenged the current forms of cost-benefit analysis and called for a different approach to calculating the value produced by different professions… we are looking forward to meeting her, do more future mappings and have discussions on how to challenge existing forms of cultural work!
