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.

 

We’re also very pleased to announce our third annual public conference ‘The Big Questions’, will be taking place on the 18th and 19th March 2017.
