A literary reference, not our concept, in fact:
” As they flew over the crematorium, the plane shot upwards on the column of hot air rising from the chimneys, only to fall as suddenly when it passed into the descending chill beyond.
“What a marvellous switchback!” Lenina laughed delightedly.
But Henry’s tone was almost, for a moment, melancholy. “Do you know what that switchback was?” he said. “It was some human being finally and definitely disappearing. Going up in a squirt of hot gas. It would be curious to know who it was–a man or a woman, an Alpha or an Epsilon. …” He sighed. Then, in a resolutely cheerful voice, “Anyhow,” he concluded, “there’s one thing we can be certain of; whoever he may have been, he was happy when he was alive. Everybody’s happy now.”
“Yes, everybody’s happy now,” echoed Lenina. They had heard the words repeated a hundred and fifty times every night for twelve years”.

Local Futures/International Society for Ecology and Culture (ISEC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization of cultural and biological diversity, and the strengthening of local communities and economies worldwide. “Rather than attempting to solve every problem by ‘growing the economy’, we need to focus instead on meeting real human and ecological needs through awakening to our spiritual ties to community and nature – through an ‘economics of happiness’:

At the Institute for New Economic Thinking – Oxford Martin School, they believe that “for much of the twentieth century economics was dominated by ideas that humans are perfectly rational, markets are perfectly efficient, institutions are optimally designed, and that market economies tend to self-correct, finding an equilibrium that delivers the best social outcome. New economic thinking takes a more realistic view that embraces the messy reality of the economy. It sees the economy as a dynamic, complex, evolving, network of interacting, heterogeneous individuals and institutions who who don’t always behave rationally and have limited information, but nonetheless learn, are innovative, and evolve over time.”:

Thomas Piketty argues that Simon Kuznets mistook (while formulating Kuznets curve) the 1930-1950 decrease in inequality for the endpoint of its development. Since 1950, inequality has again reached pre-WW II levels.

On 12 December 2017, Rethinking Economics and the New Weather Institute published ’33 Theses for an Economics Reformation’ to mark 500 years since the Catholic Reformation.
