And then to act in service of these latter.

Die neue Share Economy: Bibliotheken der Dinge34 lung der Menschheit nicht zu gefährden, denn notwendig ist z.B. auch eine Er- nährungswende. Aber: Ohne das Sharing von Produkten dürfte dieses Ziel nicht erreicht werden. Sharing bzw. eine Share Economy ist folglich eine unverzichtba- re Strategie, um die soziale und ökologische Dimension einer Nachhaltigen Ent- wicklung zu fördern.

Based on semi-structured qualitative interviews with different European, Asian and North American historical game developers, I make the case for how materialist

Why Imagined Economies? John Clarke I begin with a puzzle: why talk about imagined economies? In everyday life, economies appear to be exactly the opposite of ‘imagined’: they are material, substantial, overpowering, forceful and constantly demanding our attention. Indeed, we are immersed in economies: we inhabit a global economy, a regional economy, a national economy (and live with the unsettling intersection between them). More abstractly, there are dis- cussions about financial economies (and their opposite ‘real econo- mies’); the learning

Cultures of Economy Theoretical Perspectives Jurij Murašov, Davor Beganović, Andrea Lešić 1.
