Economy (

A project by Rethinking Economics

How often do you watch the news or read something online where someone’s talking about economics, and feel like they’re speaking a different language? Everyone knows this stuff is important, but it can be difficult to get your head around. With all that jargon, it’s easy to feel disconnected from what’s happening. Like it’s going on somewhere else.

Our mission is to create a world in which everybody has the confidence to talk about the economy in a way that has meaning to them, engaging with the issues that matter and affect their everyday life.


Do you write about dogs, host a show about Asian cooking, produce punk rock music, make GoPro skiing videos? We want to hear from you!

Economy is not a place for academics. It’s a place for writers, filmmakers, musicians, poets, comedians, illustrators, animators, or anyone with a creative take on the lives we lead, the choices we make, the things we love, and everything in between.
