Pluralist Economics at Sussex (PEAS)

A PhD student in Economics, a former Economics undergraduate and a Social Science postgraduate working at the Institute of Development Studies met to discuss their perception that the subject of Economics is taught too narrow-minded and could need a much more pluralist perspective and reflection.


Last year we ran the lecture series “"How Economists Explain the World - An Introduction to the Big Questions of Economics and Various Perspectives to Answer Them”. Included renowned speakers such as Mariana Mazzucato, Stephany Griffith-Jones, Ed Steinmueller and others.

We are currently all abroad or in the final phase of the PhD so that there are no regular meetings. We are looking for motivated students who want to change what they are being taught! If you want to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact us!
