Professor and rockstar economist Steve Keen is popping over the channel to give the keynote speech at our winter event on december 12th fully dedicated to 'The New Economics Education'!
Time: 20.00-22.00 (19.30 doors open) Location: Spui25 Cost: FREE
Steve will give the keynote speech about economics education at Kingston University, where he is Head of School of Economics. Kingston has heard the call for more pluralism, and made strides in diversifying their economics education. What can the Netherlands learn from the experiences at Kingston?
After the keynote we will have a panel discussion and Q&A session about putting pluralism in practice at Dutch universities and in the public debate. What are the opportunities and challenges? Speakers are still to be confirmed.
We hope to see you there!
(This evening is is part of the ESB Week of Economics Education, a week full of discussion about the state of economics education in the Netherlands)

At Rethinking Economics NL, we are proud to publish our first working paper. In this paper, we systematically scan the curricula of Dutch bachelor programs in economics on several measures of diversity. We establish which schools are being treated, which methodologies are being taught and identify opportunities for improvement. In the paper, we also compare various universities with each other on these and other variables.

We asked attendees of the Sustainable Finance Lab event last month about money creation five questions about money. Can you imagine a world without money?
