Abstract:     
This paper contains three parts. The first outlines the reasons I believe the time has come to develop a shared disciplinary core for socio-economics. It then turns to the principles that ought to guide us in developing such a core, and finally, suggests several specific elements for such a discipline. While my discussion benefits from a document formulated when SASE, a society founded to advance socio-economics, was first founded, all that follows reflected my current views as to on what is to be done and to feed into a dialogue on this subject. Clearly, the only way such a core can be developed is through an extended and extensive dialogue among those of us who are concerned about the future of socio-economics as an academic discipline, as a basis for public policy, and as a source for our fellow persons to better understand and guide the social and economic world in which we all live.
