Welcome to Rebuilding Macroeconomics


We are a diverse and extensive network of mainstream and heterodox economists and academics from anthropology, biology, complexity, finance, history, philosophy, physics, psychology, sociology. Our Network brings together academics, policy makers, representatives of civil society and interested members of the public. Our aim is to transform macroeconomics into a policy-relevant social science.

Rebuilding Macroeconomics is a research network structured around a concept of Research Hubs. Each Hub addresses a specific “real world” macroeconomic issue and aims to ask relevant questions, chosen after extensive consultation with academics and the public. Hubs are settings for scholars and practitioners to explore and learn from each other, and to consider possible new methods of investigation.
