The PPE Society will be screening ‘Boom Bust Boom’ for the first International Student Initiative for Pluralism in Economics (ISIPE) Global Action Day.
This screening will also include an update on ISIPE by Nick Pringle (Executive Member, PPE Society), and a short presentation by Dr. Tim Thornton (Political Economist, La Trobe University).
It is time for Action! One year ago ISIPE published an open letter titled ‘An international student call for pluralism in economics’ which was signed by more than 65 student groups from over 30 countries. In the past year we have achieved a lot but there is still a long way ahead.
Today, on May 5th 2015, we are standing up again for a change in the teaching of economics. For an education that prepares us to understand and contend with the challenges our world faces in the 21st century. For a return of the real world to the classroom and room for debates. And therefore for Pluralism in Economics!
This year more than 30 local groups in 12 different countries are staging events to raise attention and consciousness for our demands.
