In recent years, after the collapse of the central planned economies and the failure of the neo-liberalist policies of today, it has emerged a growing awareness of the need to find a "third way to economic and social progress". In our work, we focus attention on how a systematic collaboration between heterodox economics and psychoanalysis can help to achieve this objective. We explore the potential of this interdisciplinary perspective for (i) attaining a deeper insight into the causes of economic and social imbalances of our days; and, on this basis, (ii) for realizing a roadmap of policy action targeted at the solutions of the most urgent economic and social problems. In this way, the transition from the "mixed capitalism" of today, heavily influenced by powerful interest groups, to more sustainable and equitable social systems would no longer be considered as a kind of socialist utopia but as a feasible objective to be pursued with a new course of policy action.
