Centre for Associative Economics


The Centre for Associative Economics (CfAE) was founded in 2000 with the goal of promoting associative economics as a credible school of thought through the publication of books, papers, scholarly articles and a monthly magazine, Associate!


The Centre was set up as a limited company rather than as a non-profit, because the founders see nothing wrong with profits and believe the future belongs to for-profit companies. The question is whether they are made equitably and what use is made of them, whether only as private gain or to further 'public' objectives, or both. After all, not-for-profits depend on the profits made by others!


The Centre provides a virtual venue for individuals to work together to promote associative economics through seminars, publications, etcetera. Its activities should be financed by the people who benefit from them. All involved with the Centre act in a self-employed capacity.


Last update: October 2014.
