Post-Crash Economics Society, Manchester

We began with small, informal meetings midway through the 2012/13 academic year. We have grown, and as of today are a vibrant student society at the forefront of debate discussing how economists should be educated. We have appeared in newspapers such as The Guardian, The Washington Post, and on a BBC world service documentary about the University Economics curriculum. 3,930 people follow our Facebook page, and we’ve had over a total of 500+ attendees to our events over the past two years.


Please see our website and facebook pages below for details about our upcoming events!


NUS Society of the year 2014, UOM campaigns society of the year, our first conference in spring 2015, our report being downloaded over 20,000 times and the small changes in the curriculum.

We've run three annual public conferences, drawing 200+ attendees each year. With speakers such as Paul Mason, Claire Jones, Martin Wolf, Kate Raworth, and Ann Pettifor. Our aim is to continue to provoke discussion between students and staff about what economics is, what it should be and how it should be taught.
