IT’S TIME TO RETHINK ECONOMICS
Rethinking Economics is a global network of students and organisers fighting for a new way of teaching and practising economics so that it truly helps us deal with the real-world challenges we all face today like climate collapse and inequality.
The world is beginning to realise the many ways in which mainstream economic thought has been failing our societies. The climate crisis, pandemics, and growing global inequality demonstrate the need for change.
The problem we face is the total dominance of one way of teaching, which promotes the marketisation of society, leading to increased inequality, injustice and significant harm to the natural world. We need students of economics to leave university with a tool-kit of skills they can use to help us face these challenges effectively.

RECLAIMING ECONOMICS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS
