OPEN Economics Leeds

OPEN Economics Leeds is a new group of like minded rethinkers with a wide range of backgrounds, interests and perspectives aiming to demystify, diversify and invigorate economics, based at Leeds University. 
This society is to discuss economics that matters, considering everything that is put forward. We do not want to rely on one sphere of thought but all of those available.
