"One cannot separate economics, political science, and history.
Politics is the control of the economy. History, when accurately
and fully recorded, is that story. In most textbooks and classrooms, not
only are these three fields of study separated, but they are further compartmentalized
into separate subfields, obscuring the close interconnections between them."
- J.W. Smith, The World’s Wasted Wealth-
Social economy institutions and organizations play an important role in promoting livelihoods and job creation in the fight against poverty. Social economy enterprises offer an important source of employment in the face of global unemployment and underemployment problem.
