ACADEMIC: To bridge disciplines within and outside of economics; to advance neglected but critical economic perspectives and methodologies; to promote collaboration, humility and ethical practice in academia.
EDUCATIONAL: To demystify economics as a technical science, building open and collaborative communities of economic thinkers. To expand the creativity and social awareness of our future economists and citizens. To bring the basic tools of economic analysis into the hands of all of us who participate in a society shaped by economic forces.
POLITICAL: To equip us all with the ability to organise effectively, and to get economics students and academics to recognise their roles and responsibilities as political actors within their institutions and within wider public life.
Who we are
Why we act
RETHINK your economics: Economics as it is widely taught does not reflect the economy we are living in. We need to ask new questions to get new answers, and we need a greater diversity of ideas in economics.REDEFINE the debate: We deserve new narratives and new responses to the economic, environmental and social crises developing on our planet.
