Rethinking Economics Singapore
We, at Rethinking Economics Singapore, care about Economics. We are proud to be part of a discipline that has lifted billions out of extreme poverty, and developed stable and efficient economic institutions.
However, Economics needs Rethinking. As students and alumni ourselves, we came to Economics searching for ways to deal with the complex problems of today. Instead we learned models without historical context, theory without room for critique. We want to work with schools to Rethink how Economics can be taught better.
There is more to Economics than we used to think. We ourselves used to think about Economics primarily in relation to finance and policy. But Economics touches every part of our lives, and has something to say about race and gender, colonialism, climate change. We want to Rethink our conceptions of what Economics is, and what Economics can be.
