Abstract [en]

The challenges of sustainable development are multidimensional and involve all actors in society. To match this challenge economics is defined in a way as 'multidimensional management of resources in a democratic society'. It is argued that present unsustainable patterns raise issues of possible paradigm failure, ideological failure and democracy failure. A political economics approach is suggested where individuals and organisations are understood in political terms. 'Ideology' and 'ideological orientation' are proposed as essential concepts in an alternative theoretical framework for economics and sustainability politics. A method for sustainability assessment compatible with democracy is proposed. It is finally discussed how our chances to deal successfully with climate change may be improved by systematically  developing alternatiives to the neoclassical paradigm and ideology.
