This is your reminder, tickets are now selling out!


Tuesday, March 31, 2015 9:00 AM until Thursday, April 2, 2015 5:00 PM
“Boom, Bust, Boom, Bust: Why Economics is for Everyone” is an (un)conference running from 31st March-2nd April at the University of Manchester, Speakers include Martin Wolf, Ha­Joon Chang, Claire Jones, Paul Mason, Vicky Pryce, Diane Coyle, Alan Kirman, Nick Mathiason, Jill Rubery, Victoria Chick and many more. We are holding the premier of Terry Jones’ new documentary on financial crises Boom Bust Boom which includes life size singing puppets and economics themed spoken word workshops run by Young Identity, this has however unfortunately not sold out. However, the most important part of an (un)conference is the participants who bring life and energy to it all.
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 well-being. 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. This is why economics is for everybody.

We hope to see you there,

Post-Crash Economics Society & Rethinking Economics
