About this site

Age of Economics is a website focused on raising individual and collective awareness of the global capitalist civilization in which most of humanity is living – and that affects all homo sapiens, and all other species that inhabit our planet. The motivation to understand the inner workings and outward trajectory of global capitalism comes from the fact that modern homo sapiens civilization faces converging challenges that many scientists agree are existential in nature. The motivation also comes from the fact that we live in an extremely specialized world that has alienated most of us from the “big picture” of global capitalist civilization, leaving us less and less able to see the forest for the trees.

The Concept

Age of Economics is interviewing a diverse group of economic and non-economic thinkers – famous and less-known alike – with the aim of heightening our understanding of global capitalist civilization in terms of both the benefits it has conferred on humanity and the converging threats that it poses (in its current incarnation) to organized human civilization.

In so doing, Age of Economics strives to transcend the political spectrum and examine global capitalist civilization from the viewpoint of the human species as a whole, with the ultimate objective of seeking out solutions to address the world’s most salient, most urgent, existential challenges. We are asking a series of 8 questions to each of our interviewees.

Who we are

We are William Hynes, the head of the new economic thinking unit (NAEC) at the OECD, Fabio Dondero, an independent Berlin-based documentary filmmaker, William Fajzel, a graduate student in economics at McGill University in Montreal Canada, and Julian Karaguesian, an economic advisor and McGill University adjunct professor in Montreal and Ottawa, Canada.


Support us

Age of Economics is a free platform. It is also unmonetized; while we pursue the study of economics and capitalism, we are not motivated by the profit motive. We do not receive any renumeration for our work or content and are committed to keeping our site and channel ad-free. Therefore, we must purchase the resources we need to produce our interviews and content with money out of our own pockets. As our sole source of funding, donations from readers and viewers are crucial to keeping our project running independently.

If you find value in our work, please support us in any way you see fit. We accept monetary and cryptocurrency donations.

Thank you, The Age of Economics team.
