Social Macroeconomics is the study of practical decision-making in a world of partial ignorance.
Rebuilding Macroeconomics is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and is part of the Institute for Global Prosperity at University College London (UCL). Our long-term aim is to transform macroeconomics back into a policy relevant social science. Our strategy is to support interdisciplinary research and new methods of analysis in macroeconomics.
We have six research hubs which each addresses a specific “real world” macroeconomic issue.
Featuring authors who have received support, or been an active participant in research hubs.
