Rethinking Economics Gent was created in 2018 by students and researchers with different backgrounds, united in their disappointment with the narrow scope of ‘mainstream’ economics. Important topics like climate change, poverty and inequality barely have a place there and when they do, they are handled with the same, limited set of tools. As a result economists have an odd view of the world in comparison to their colleagues of the social sciences. The ‘rethinkers’ were encouraged by their international mother organization ‘Rethinking Economics’ and felt the need to take local action. The group addresses itself to everyone interested in an economy that occupies itself with relevant, societal issues. For RE9000 pluralism, and thus the involvement of other sciences, is a big priority. Our organisation attracts students from economical and other fields (e.g. law, philosophy, history, political science, etc.). All levels of knowledge are welcome. By way of debates, lectures, actios, projects, games and other on campus activities Rethinking Economics tries to stimulate the public debate and learn as much as possible about economics in relation to our beautiful, complex yet vulnerable world.
