Session: Does the Mainstream Economics Curriculum Need an Overhaul? Views from Students, Employers and Faculty
Chaired By: Ralf Becker, The University of Manchester
Organizer(s): Ralf Becker, The University of Manchester
When & Where: Tuesday 8 April 2014, 17:00 - 18:30, Room University Place 2.219/2.220
A current debate on the contents of a modern Economics degree's curriculum to the people that need to deliver any such curriculum, Economists in Universities.

The Royal Economics Society, CHUDE, Government Economics Services, the Bank of England and others have been having a vigorous and productive debate about the suitability of the widely taught Economics curriculum (see the recent letter published in the RES Newsletter). However, it is our impression that this debate has not yet permeated the academic profession. We would like to use the opportunity of a Special Session at the RES conference to carry this debate deeper into the profession and ensure that it's themes are discussed widely.
