Forthcoming Events

Cancelled: Innovation Symposium 

This event is now cancelled.  Despite considerable interest, and with heart-felt regret, we have decided to cancel the symposium.

This is due to two sources of uncertainty.
One source is the ongoing strike action in a large number of UK universities and its implications for people's schedules over the next few weeks. The other source is the developments around the Corona virus, which reflect increased emphasis on containment and precautions globally.
Coming to this conclusion has not been easy for us. We hope to be able to reschedule after the Easter break.

Postponed: Rethinking Economics 2020: salvage the future


The future is uncertain. From ecological breakdown to precarious work, many people feel that business as usual is leading us towards a dead end. However, despite all the pessimism and fear, young people across the globe are demanding change - on the streets and in the classroom.

While dissenting students in economics have raised an unlimited number of questions about the future, answers from the mainstream remain scarce. Is our economics education fit to meet the challenges of the coming decade? What economic issues are behind this sense of decline? And do we need systemic change to salvage the future? On March 28 2020, Rethinking Economics Greenwich (REG) will host a festival of ideas to tackle these questions.

Speakers include Grace Blakeley, Jonathan Aldred, Daniela Gabor, Özlem Onaran, Nick Srnieck and many more...
  • Time: Saturday 28 March 10am to 6pm
  • Location: Room QA080, Queen Anne Court, Greenwich Campus, University of Greenwich
  • Tickets: Tickets are free but please sign up here, where you will find more information about speakers, location and details.

8th PKES Summer School – Introduction to Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy

*** Due to the uncertainty of the situation with respect to the Coronavirus we decided to freeze all applications for the summer school for now. We're considering all options such as organising an online version.

If you are interested in participating in person if the summer school goes ahead or if you are interested in the online version, please leave your email in this form and we will contact you directly via email with any updates. We will also publish updates on this website. ***

This four-day summer school introduces Post Keynesian Economics as an alternative to mainstream neoclassical economic theory and neol-iberal economic policy. Key assumptions in Post Keynesian Economics are that individuals face fundamental uncertainty about the future; there is a central role for 'animal spirits' in the determination of investment decisions; inflation is the result of unresolved distributional conflicts; money is an endogenous creation of the private banking system; unemployment is determined by effective demand on the goods markets; financial markets are prone to periodic boom-bust cycles.

The summer school is aimed at students of economics and social sciences. As the aim of Post Keynesian Economics and Political Economy ultimately is to provide the foundation for progressive economic policies, it may be of interest for a broader audience.

  • Tuesday 23 June to Friday 26 June
