This paper contains three parts. The first outlines the reasons I believe the time has come to develop a shared body of thought for socio-economics. It then turns to the principles that might guide us in developing such a core, and finally, suggests several specific elements for such an approach.

Although my discussion benefits from a document formulated after SASE (Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics) was founded, all that follows reflected my current views as to what is to be done in order to feed 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.
