It’s time to rethink economics

Expect Better!

Rethinking economic pedagogy requires us to reconsider the tools we are passing on to future generations.

To rethink research is to question prevailing paradigms, under the common goal of further developing the discipline of economics.

Rethinking policy means revising the way we form, explain and implement economic policy, as well as the consequences for democracy.

Today’s economies reproduce, and often worsen, vast and harmful inequalities between people and countries. These inequalities are often inextricably bound up with historical violence and oppression.

Drawing on over sixty interviews with students and professionals from identities and backgrounds marginalised in economics and a wide range of global and historical research, this book illustrates the ways in which the discipline is currently not fit for purpose and sets out a vision for how it can be diversified, decolonised and democratised.
