In 2008, the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression caught most economists by surprise. In its aftermath, the student movement "Rethinking Economics" called for education in more than just "mainstream" (or "neoclassical") economics. Most universities resisted this call; Kingston responded. Our degrees therefore provide a broader and more critical approach to economics than most UK universities.
