A new year calls for new thinking so let’s discover the best economic ideas of 2019 . . .

Kate Raworth’s book Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist proposes seven mindset shifts to make economics fit for addressing this century’s challenges. But many other shifts are needed too so, in order to explore them, we decided to launch a competition based on this challenge:

The competition is open internationally, to both individuals and groups, and submissions can be made under one of three categories:

  1. school students
  2. university students (undergraduate, masters and PhD)
  3. everyone else

We’ve got a fantastic panel of economic re-thinkers who are ready to review your entries and select the very best as winners. So get rethinking!
