Rethinking Economics CZ started in 2015 as a group of students interested in a broad range of economic disciplines. Our first events intended to connect researchers from economics with other social sciences, including the former governor of the Czech National Bank. Since then we aim to promote communication between economic scholars, students and public broader public. We also participated in an exhibition “Soul of money” in 2016.
Recently, we like to venture into emerging topics in economics such as the economic impacts of automation and Artificial Intelligence or health economics. But we don’t forget our traditional topics and we serve them in an original Czech way: a series of informal economic debates over a beer at so called ‘Theorists’ Bar’. This way, we can approach interested students and speakers more directly and enjoy our time together.
