Welcome

This is the blog for the Real World Economics Society formed at the University of Bristol

The intention is for this blog to contain posts written by members of the group, while also being an avenue for lively debate amongst contributors and readers. Throughout the duration of the year there will be specific posts highlighting recently held events, where we will have multiple contributors to provide views on the area introduced allowing for a full spectrum of views.

The idea is to create a comfortable place to share ideas and thoughts about how economics is applied to the real world, and what kind of theories and adaptations are being put in place to make the subject matter increasingly dynamic.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the blog, for further information see our remit below.


“The Economics curriculum is undergoing change and Economic jargon increasingly dominates news presented in the media. This group will aim to:

  • Form a collective body that engage critically with the Economics taught at University and presented in the media
  • Provide a channel to connect Bristol with the movement for curriculum change and pluralism in Social Sciences
  • Widen engagement with Economics to other disciplines

We encourage creative thinking and fresh ideas on relevant issues. The group will be moderated as to be:

  • Non-partisan
  • Accessible
  • Inclusive
  • Collaborative
  • Respectful
