'Pluralist Economics at Sussex' is a young student society at Sussex and part of the national network 'Rethinking Economics' (www.rethinkeconomics.org).
Our main aim is to promote pluralism in economics education; we think that learning about a range of schools of thought, methodologies and interdisciplinary approaches will help us understand the world we live in better.
We want to engage with students at all level of education who want to join the discussion on how to make economics education more open and pluralist. Of course, everyone from postgraduate, faculty to interested citizen is welcome!
We organise several events during the year such as lecturers (followed by chats over a pint at IDS) on heterodox approaches to economics, career events and film screenings.
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”. With contributions by profs Mariana Mazzucato, Stephen Young, Stephany Griffith-Jones and Ed Steinmueller.
We are currently all abroad so that there are no regular meetings, but as soon as we are back, we will organise events and let you know.
