Grassroots economics

Grassroots economics: Meaning, project and practice in the pursuit of livelihood is a research group around Susana Narotzky (University of Barcelona) funded by the European Research Council.

The project proposes a bottom-up approach to economic dynamics. It is dedicated to give theoretical value to non-academic intellectual models that guide economic practice and to explain their significance for understanding the large scale economy. Four Southern European countries – Portugal, Italy, Greece and Spain — have been strategically selected as research sites due to their relevance in the current European crisis.
