The New Economics Zine

Issue 1: Change the rules

We’re excited to announce the first issue of the New Economics Zine! This zine isn’t designed to be the usual thinktank academic journal. We’ve got articles from youth climate strikers, seasoned economists, organisers and campaigners. This first issue is about changing the rules of the economy so it works for people and planet.

With articles from Christine Berry & Joe Guinan, Miatta Fahnbulleh, Guppi Bola, Frances Ryan and many many more. This zine is for you, and for the movement, so we hope you enjoy!
