Economics: past, present and future. An interview project

GOLDSMITHS, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON | JULY 2016 – JUNE 2017

Economics education has been debated for a long time, but since the Global Financial Crisis it has come under public scrutiny. This project aims to provide an accessible way for new generations of economics students and scholars, as well as the general public, to get acquainted with different schools of economic thought and their bearing on economics teaching. We have interviewed distinguished economists on the plurality of analytical traditions within economics and how these have informed their own work. The interviews range from long-standing debates to current issues, and provide first-hand access to the thought of key contemporary economists.
