Have you got a brilliant idea for 21st century economics? Can you tell it short and sweet? If the answer is yes! yes! then this competition is just for you . . .
Doughnut Economics: seven ways to think like a 21st century economist proposes seven mindset shifts to make economics fit for addressing this century’s challenges. But many other shifts are needed too so, in order to explore them, I joined forces with Rethinking Economics – the international student movement for pluralism in economics education – to launch a competition based on this challenge:
We’ve got a totally stellar panel of judges – all economic re-thinkers themselves – who are ready to review your entries and select the very best as winners. And there are separate categories for school students, university students, and everyone else – so yes, your idea really does stand a chance of standing out. Check out the full competition details here and please help spread the message far and wide in your networks – with the hashtag #8thwaytothink – because we want to celebrate all the fantastic new economic thinking that is bubbling up. So get rethinking and good luck!
