What was your motivation for reading economics? Did you want to learn about the pressing issues of our time – the current global economic crisis, the gap between the rich and the poor and the environmental concerns? Or did you perhaps want to be well prepared for a job in the City – to understand how economies function, to learn about specific industries or consumers? Whatever your aim was, how did you feel when you were first faced with the actual content of your papers? Do you feel like your studies are not addressing issues that you find important? Do you sometimes feel like you are not actually learning about the real world?
If any of those issues ever concerned you, then you might be interested in Paper 0, CSEP's open-lecture series run by students, for students. Here we address issues that we feel are not addressed in the curriculum, including inequality, climate change, and feminist economics.
