The Rethinking Economics New York 2014 conference is an entirely student-run conference to be held in New York City from September 12-14 at The New School and Columbia University.
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 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, MICHAEL SANDEL, PHILIP MIROWSKI, RICHARD WOLF, DEAN BAKER and JULIA NELSON.
