Rethinking Economics: Quito, Ecuador
History has showed us that the mainstream on the education and application of the economics theory has failed to explain a lot of the most important events in the local and the international economy. This is why it is necessary to study different streams that let us having a wider vision. As economics students we believe that is our duty to rethink the base and the economic assumptions, and incorporate new ideas that have a multidisciplinary approach, in order to develop new streams of economic thinking that can deal with the challenges of our generation. Finally, we understand that this is a problem around the globe, and we think that is better if we connect with students from all the planet that have our same objectives. We see in Rethinking Economics a perfect place to be part of, in order to achieve this goals.
We are a group of economics students, at the Pontifical University Catholic of Ecuador and, like many others dissatisfied with economic theory, as we are aware of what this causes in the society and in the policies around the world.
Therefore our goal is the redefinition of the postulates of that economic theory, through the exercise of the academic debate and the creation of knowledge and thus contribute positively and influence to the leaders of every field in which the economic theory take part.
