The 4th International Conference on Law, Economics and Politics (AICLEP, Cambridge, 2017), was held at Newnham College, Cambridge University, United Kingdom, September 18th – 20th, 2017. The conference was attended by representatives of higher education institutions and research institutes of India, South Africa, Great Britain, Poland and the UAE.

Prof. Alexander Bezgodov, Professor and General Director of Planetary Development Institute (PDI) and Dr. Konstantin Barezhev, Director for Research presented the paper, "Planetary Rent and Planetary Ethics as the Basis of an Alternative Economic Scenario", which reflected some of the core ideas spelled out in the recently published monograph "Planetary Rent as an Instrument for Solving Global Problems", as well as a number of original points from the forthcoming book tentatively titled "The Origins of Planetary Ethics in the Philosophy of Russian Cosmism." The audience demonstrated keen interest in the paper giving its authors enthusiastic feedback.

On behalf of the Planetary Development Institute we express sincere gratitude to the organizers of the conference and personally to the head of the section "Economics and Finance", Dr. Samantha Sintes-Barber and panel co-chair, Dr. Sanjay Kumar Pradhan.
