PKES wrote to the Guardian to express our support for the calls by students at Cambridge, Essex, Glasgow, LSE, Manchester, Sheffield, SOAS and UCL for pluralism in the teaching of Economics: Post-Keynesians are staging a comeback
The students formed a global alliance, ISIPE, and issued an open letter on 4 May 2014. The Manchester students published their proposals with a foreword by Andrew Haldane.
On 2 December 2014 the BBC broadcast a documentary on the current state of the student campaign.
On the same day, a new initiative, Reteaching Economics, was launched. This is an open network of UK-based early career academics dedicated to pluralism in economics education.
