Fighting back against the constraints and injustices inherent in orthodox economic thought and teaching are a growing number of brave and determined student activists.
Economics needs you is the voice of these activists and argues that to build sustainable economies, which serve people and the planet, we need a diverse and decolonised curriculum.
This book explores these ideas through a series of searching questions: How does the global economy currently fail people and the planet? Why has mainstream economics knowledge inadequately addressed the pressing issues of today such as systemic racism and the climate crisis? What does an economist look like and whom do they teach? How does the professional culture within economics maintain problems within the discipline and its outputs? Culminating in a call to action that provides readers with the necessary steps they can take to further embed diversifying, decolonising and democratising economics in education, society and policymaking.
