2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Every democracy needs voters who are fluent in the language of economics and who can do some quantitative analysis of social policy. We also need a well-trained cadre of researchers and journalists who have more advanced skills in these fields. Many students in other disciplines are drawn to economics so that they can engage with policy debates on environmental sustainability, inequality, the future of work, financial instability, and innovation. But when they start to study economics, they find that many introductory courses are arid and theoretical, and are designed primarily for students who want to study the subject as their major. The result: policy-oriented students often find they have to choose between either a quantitative and analytical course of study that is only minimally social in content and downplays the insights of other disciplines, or a socially-oriented course of study that gives them little training in modelling, or in quantitative scientific methods. Economy, Society, and Public Policy changes this. It has been created specifically for students from social science, public policy, business studies, engineering, and other disciplines who are not economics majors. If you are one of these students, we want to engage, challenge, and empower you with an understanding of economics. Using this, we hope you will have the tools to articulate reasoned views on pressing policy problems. You may even decide to take more courses in economics as a result. This project is the result of a worldwide collaboration between researchers, educators, and students who are committed to bringing the socially relevant insights of economics to a broader audience.
