The 2014 Rethinking Economics NYC conference has ended. However, we will be uploading videos of various conference sessions to the Rethinking Economics YouTube channel shortly. Follow us on YouTube and Twitter and like us on Facebook to stay updated!
The 2014 Rethinking Economics NYC conference is an entirely student-run conference in New York City from September 12-14 at The New School, Columbia University and NYU.
It is organized by Rethinking Economics in partnership with The Modern Money Network.
Rethinking Economics is a global movement to create fresh economic narratives that challenge and enrich the predominant narratives in economics. The movement unites all who support new ways of thinking. We believe that the mainstream approach to understanding our economy, while definitely valuable, is far too narrow. We value pluralism: the belief that economics should be a more interdisciplinary subject that embraces useful ideas from various schools of thought and subject fields.
The Modern Money Network is a trans-disciplinary learning hub, dedicated to improving the function, design, operations and legal regulation of money. It is student-conceived and student-run, and combines insights from a range of fields, including law, political economy, finance, history, sociology, anthropology, technology and systems theory.
The New York conference will bring together students and thinkers from North America in order to engage in student-led workshops and a series of interesting speakers including:
|DEIRDRE McCLOSKEY||PHILIP MIROWSKI||MICHAEL SANDEL|
|DEAN BAKER||RICHARD WOLFF||JULIE NELSON|
|PAUL KRUGMAN||NEVA GOODWIN||JAMES K. GALBRAITH|
