Rethinking Economics Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador
RE-USFQ is a group of Economics students with a emphasis in “liberal arts” (that gives a wide vision of the world) that wants to explore more into other schools or ways to understand economy. Rethinking Economics is the perfect place to finally get connected with people all around the world who think and desire a different perspective of reality and studies. One of our goals is to meet people with more experience than us in order to generate a national Society of Heterodox Economists in Ecuador.
RE-USFQ wants to create knowledge for its members, and generate debate not only inside the group, but also with students from the rest of the universities in the country and region. The ultimate goal is to propose economic alternatives in an oil dependent country that currently is facing a deep economic crisis.
