Let’s put first things first. The Heterodox Economics Newsletter will be hosting an exhibition booth at the Allied Social Science Association (ASSA) Annual Meetings in Philadelphia, USA, January 3-5, 2014. The purpose of organizing this booth is to visibly show that there is an alternative to mainstream-neoclassical economics, to improve the publicity of heterodox economics, and, hence, to confront the giant elephant in the room. This booth is located in the conference headquarter hotel along with major publishers and associations. We would like to share this space with heterodox economics associations (not limited to U.S. based associations) and independent heterodox economic journals so that your association/journal can display and distribute various materials, such as association/journal information, membership/subscription form, a sample journal issue, forthcoming events, and the like. For more information, see our call for participation (or download the invitation letter).
Secondly, We’d like to call your attention (and participation) to “Rethinking Economics” conference (London) organized by “Young Economists Network” — a group of student organizations in the UK and Germany. This Network is supported by World Economics Association. We were also told that the US Young Economists Network was going to organize a similar event and to start a journal.
