Money talks? Communication as/and Economy
International Interdisciplinary Conference
May 04, 2017
Corvinus University of Budapest
Budapest, Fővám tér 8.
The aim of this international conference – organised by The Institute of Behavioural Sciences and Communication Theory of Corvinus University of Budapest – is to reveal the mostly hidden dimensions and concepts behind the intersection of communication and economy, and to offer novel perspectives on their combined interpretation and analysis.
The conference is based on two main pillars: a) Communication as a framework explaining economic behaviour; and b) Communication as Economics.
Communicational behaviour and the use of language not only express but also greatly influence the way we think about the world, our everyday actions, and our habits and experiences.
- How can it be that in a similar economic environment the speakers of diverse languages economise completely differently, have a different relationship to money, as well as to taking out loans and repaying them?
- Why is it that bank account savings or financial awareness cannot be increased by traditional marketing methods after a while?
- What communicational and linguistic factors can influence changes in our experience and behaviour related to money and economy?
