The 2016 conference featured economists from around the world
“Economics for Everyone” is a conference at the University of Manchester. It isn’t a typical conference where you go along to watch some experts speak, ask a question and go home. We have designed events to be interactive, more like a conversation than a lecture. We want to create a forum which is accessible to everyone, that starts conversations between people who would never normally meet and most importantly which is fun and stimulating.
We believe that all citizens in the UK must have a basic knowledge of economics and the confidence to use it both as a requirement for democracy to function effectively and for our own wellbeing. Understanding a bit about economics and fostering a civil society in which it is vigorously discussed can help us feel more in control of our lives.
