CAMBRIDGE SOCIETY FOR ECONOMIC PLURALISM
Economic Pluralism Cambridge
he Cambridge Society for Economic Pluralism, a student-run society which organises talks and discussions to encourage debate between different schools of Economic thought and engage with current policy issues. Our weekly events are typically very well attended (upwards of 100 people) by economics students and academics.
The Cambridge Society for Economic Pluralism (CSEP) is run by a dedicated group of students united by the belief that progress in the discipline of economics will be driven by an increasingly interdisciplinary approach and a pluralist platform in the 21st century. CSEP aims to enrich the understanding of economic thought within the Cambridge community and promote alternative views on conventional economic thought as well as current affairs in an innovative discussion format.
The Cambridge Society for Economic Pluralism (CSEP) organises a range of events, including seminars on the history of economic thought, discussion panels on events of political, economic and social interest and forums to introduce new game-changing trends in economic research. CSEP regularly invites speakers from both the Faculty of Economics of the University of Cambridge and renowned economists, academics, politicians and journalists from around the world. Recent appearances have included Professor Barry Eichengreen (UC Berkeley), Professor Nicholas Crafts (University of Warwick), Jon Cunliffe, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and Ha Joon Chang (University of Cambridge) among others.
The CPES Trust was established in 1985 by the Cambridge Political Economy Society. Its stated aims are (1) to advance the education of the public in political economy and related matters, and (2) to promote research in matters pertaining to political economy and to publish the useful results of such research. The Trust works to further these aims by providing funding for a variety of projects.
