The very first Festival for New Economic Thinking will take place on 19-20 Oct 2017 in Edinburgh (Scotland) prior to the INET 2017 Conference, taking place from 21-23 Oct 2017.
The Festival brings together organizations and individuals that seek to improve the way economics is taught, studied, and practiced. It provides a forum to share ideas and resources with students, academics, and the wider public.
With content from many organizations within the same large event space, participants can explore exhibits, watch screenings, take part in workshops, and learn from inspiring speakers. Actively celebrating and embracing different perspectives and schools of economic thought, the Festival for New Economic Thinking aims to provide fertile ground for the future of economics.
RAMICS will be present at the first ‘Festival for New Economic Thinking’ at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange, 19-20 October 2017. If you have the chance, come and see us at stall 19.
