Big Hope: Talking About Economy


Thinking and talking about economy is increasingly becoming the exclusive territory of political-professional experts. Through this the question is gradually losing its philosophical aspect and becoming alienated from everyday life. The project Talking about Economy is intended to challenge this position.

We asked 10 economic players from Dunaujvaros, an economically troubled industrial new town in Hungary, each of whom represented different spheres of economic life, to share their thoughts on economy. We posed them the following questions:

– What is economy's role in society?
– How would they describe a good economy?
– How would they describe a bad economy?
– What is your personal relationship to work?

The same questions were then put to workers in the same jobs in Berlin, most of whom have already experienced a fast track economic adaptation during the process of reunification.
