The Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) is an international 
organization of economists and other social scientists devoted to 
analysis of economics as evolving, socially constructed, and politically 
governed systems. The intellectual heritage of AFEE is that of the 
Original Institutional Economics (OIE) created and developed by early 
twentieth-century economists such as Thorstein Veblen, John R. Commons, 
and Wesley Mitchell. Over recent decades, this legacy has evolved to 
address such contemporary issues as:

·The role of diverse cultures in economic performance.

·Domestic and international inequalities of income.

·The roles of social, economic and political power in shaping economic 
outcomes.

·Globalization and the increasing weight of multinational corporations 
in the international economy.

·The need for expanding use of modern technologies to relieve want.

·The urgent need for awareness of the impact of new technology on the 
biosphere. The ways in which economic thought is affected by and affects 
always changing economy.
