It’s time for the Economic Reformation: Stop the Dogmatism
In the fall of 1517, popular history claims that Martin Luther nailed his famous 95 statements against the Catholic Church onto the door of his parish in his hometown of Wittenberg. His statements challenged the status quo of the Church and its dogmas. This single action has sparked the Christian reformation and shaped cultural life in Western Europe as we know it today.
Now 500 years later, we, the students and academics of Rethinking Economics NL, feel that the reformation’s sequel is long overdue. We call for a change in the economic faculties in the Netherlands and around the world. This Economic Reformation will be kicked-off on the 16th of November on campuses throughout the Netherlands. On that day, we, the friars and sisters of Rethinking Economics NL will present our first 9.5 statements that challenge the existing ideology of the economics bachelor programme.
We believe that with your help, fellow student, we can come up with more statements, to reach the original 95. So what do you think? How do you want to change your economics education? Please join the Rethinking Economics Service and tell your economic friar or sister about your experiences with the dogmatic church of the economics bachelor.
