We would like to announce that we have appointed our new director Maeve Cohen. Maeve brings with her a wealth of experience in the new economics campaigning sphere. As a founding member of the Post-Crash Economics Society, to recent experience at the Institute for Public Policy Research North where she was part of the external affairs team.
Maeve said “I’ve been involved in Rethinking for five years, I passionately believe that the positive change we want to see in the world will not happen unless we have economists that can put these ideas into action. Mainstream economics has not addressed the environmental problems we face, it has not addressed inequality, it has not created an economy that works for everyone and unless we change the way economists are taught, it never will. I am so proud, excited and honoured to become the director of Rethinking Economics and I cannot wait to see what we will achieve together.”
