About Us

We, The Post-Crash Economics Society, are a group of economics students at The University of Manchester. It is our belief that the content of the economics syllabus and teaching methods could and should be seriously rethought.

The Report

We have just published a new Report outlining what is wrong with economics education at the University of Manchester and in the UK with a foreword by the director for Financial Stability at the Bank of England!
