Rethinking Economics is an international network of students campaigning for pluralism within economics, particularly the economics curriculum, which is, at present, heavily biased towards the methods of the neoclassical school. Rethinking Economics launched with the 2013 conference, and brought together a number of smaller groups advocating for changes to economics. Together, those groups, along with many others, would write the ISIPE open letter, calling for an overhaul of the way economics is taught.
The 2014 London conference will take place on the weekend of the 28th and 29th of June at UCL, in the centre of London, and will feature keynote speeches from Lord Adair Turner and Dr. Ha-Joon Chang, plus over twenty other speakers, including Prof. Victoria Chick, Prof. David Tuckett and Will Hutton. Throughout the two-day conference we will be exploring both the problems with the current system and, more positively, alternatives to the status quo.
