The CTNTE was established with the overarching aim to promote new thinking in economics, whilst holding three core principles close to heart:
- Economics is primarily social, rather than individual.
- Economic behaviour is influenced by aesthetic and ethical values (as well as economic values).
- The pursuit of self-interest in economic behaviour can have adverse impacts on society and the environment.
We want to advance education in the field of economics – for the public good – and educate the public in developing practices and policies that recognise and reduce adverse effects that may arise from a lack of awareness of these core principles. Primarily, we encourage new thinking by supporting research and public seminars.
As the CTNTE is a Charity (Registered Charity Number: 1111552), we rely on external donations to fund our work. If you’re in a position to support us, we would be grateful for any donation – no matter how big or small! You can make a donation via the Donations page (as well as on our Contact Us page).
