Open letter to rethinking economics

December 02

We are a diverse group of early career academics who are responding to the student campaign for greater pluralism in economics. To develop our response, we are setting up an open network and invite early career academics to join us by adding their details here. Our objectives in our first few months are:

  • To provide an open platform for early career academics via reteacheconomics.org
  • To publish regular news from our wider networks via a single Twitter account @reteachecon
  • To suggest teaching resources via our Twitter account
  • To encourage debate about emerging research from early career academics

Our next meeting will be in London on Saturday 10th January 2015. We are interested in collaborating with yourselves and other student, research and practitioner groups and look forward to hearing from you.

Radio 4 Programme on Teaching economics after the crash

Will be broadcast on Tuesday 2 December, 20:00

At universities from Glasgow to Kolkata, economics students are fighting their tutors over how to teach the subject in the wake of the crash. The Guardian's senior economics commentator, Aditya Chakrabortty, reports from the frontline of this most unusual and important academic war.

The banking crash plunged economies around the world into crisis - but it also created questions for economics itself. Even the Queen asked why hardly any economists saw the meltdown coming. Yet economics graduates still roll out of exam halls and off to government departments or the City with much the same toolkit that, just five years ago, produced a massive crash.
