Real World Economics at Bristol

RWE is a group that aims to form collective body that engages critically with the Economics taught at University and presented in the media. We aim to provide a channel to connect Bristol with the movement for curriculum change and pluralism in social sciences, corresponding with politics and philosophy departments as well as the hard sciences, such as physics.


Corbynomics – The first events put on by Real World Economics. Jeremy Corbyn and 4 of his key policies taught and talked about by students with too much time on their hands.

Steve Keen: the man who knew it all before it happened - RWE had Steve Keen, author of ‘Debunking Economics’, talk about economists' misunderstand debt and money and how this led to the unforeseen shock of the financial crash.

We want to widen the engagement of economics to other disciplines, encourage creative thinking from alternate points of views and try and build a real community around the subject. The group is moderated to be: non-partisan, accessible, inclusive, collaborative and respectful.
