Professor Victoria Chick and Ann Pettifor are founding members of the new World Economics Association. Along with 139 other economists from around the world we are proud to be associated with this exciting new endeavour to fill a gap in the international community of economists — the absence of a professional organization which is truly international and pluralist.
PRIME supports the WEA manifesto:
1. To plurality. The Association will encourage the free exploration of economic reality from any perspective that adds to the sum of our understanding. To this end, it advocates plurality of thought, method and philosophy.
8. To global democracy. The Association will be democratically structured so as not to allow its domination by one country or one continent.
