ABOUT

We are a Student Run Economics Society in University College Cork Our conference brings together leading economists to talk about policy and practice.

THE SOCIETY:

The UCC Economics Society was set-up five years ago to provide academically and socially for the wide range of students studing economics in UCC and has quickly become one of the most popular and active student’s societies on campus. We do this through a wide range of debates, competitions and nights-out. In recent years, we instigated the Chinese New Year celebrations in UCC to cater for the large numbers of visiting Chinese students studying economics. Our membership not only contains students studying Economics through Arts or Commerce, but also those interested in the subject from other disciplines. In our current climate, Economics is one of the foremost topics of interest, and our society aims to capture the interest of students by hosting relevant, interesting events, with speakers that students will flock to listen to.

OUR CONFERENCE:

The conference is intended to unite leading academics and practitioners in the field to discuss economic problems with a view towards finding a pathway into the future. Applying the discussion to matters of politics and policy will focus the conference on the most current topics in a continually challenging economic environment. Importantly this discussion will take place in a college setting and will have the power to influence economic thinking into the future through the attending students, who will also be given an opportunity to question the prevailing economic thought and policy issues on the day. Tickets for the conference, which runs from 11am-5pm on Saturday the 1st of February, are €10 and are on sale both online and on campus. For more information or contact economics@uccsocieties.ie or call 087 123 68 08.

The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
