Attend our events…
The ERC focuses on issues, building our activities around emergent matters and pressing questions as they arise. In the past, we have covered a number of topics at our events and in our research, including debates on our relationship with the EU, research into the state of the energy market and property prices. We were founded in the 1930s by individuals who were concerned by the poverty they saw around them in the midst of the plenty they themselves enjoyed, and we believe that this needless inequality persists today. Our activities will continue to be guided by this principle. As Britain starts a new chapter of its economic history, there has never been a more profound need for fresh economic thinking.

The ERC has links with a number of schools, both state and independent, in and outside the capital. We offer a range of informative materials for teachers as well as running a forecasting competition each year in which students can compete against professional economists and economic modellers, receiving monthly updates and providing excellent talking points for class discussion. We also offer a range of discounts for students to attend our events, with tickets priced between £5 and £10.
We also connect proactive, able students with a range of work experience placements, both with the ERC and beyond.
