We are economists who challenge conventional wisdom and advance ideas to better serve society. INET is a platform for new thinking. Founded in the wake of the financial crisis in 2009, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization devoted to developing and sharing the ideas that can repair our broken economy and create a more equal, prosperous, and just society. To meet current and future challenges, we conduct and commission research, convene forums for exchanging ideas, develop curricula, and nurture a global community of young scholars.
Through the Young Scholars Initiative (YSI), INET provides support to students, young professionals, or others who embrace new and critical ways of thinking about the economy. YSI fosters conversation among those who wish to engage with new economic thinking and connects young scholars to the Institute’s vast network of economists.
Founded in 2012 by George Mason University economics professors Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok, Marginal Revolution University is building the world’s largest online library of free economics education videos—currently weighing in at more than 900 videos. Their small, distributed team operates out of Arlington, VA and around the globe to create Marginal Revolution University content that’s used worldwide. Whether it’s an overview of micro and macro principles, a “duel” between leading thinkers, or a primer on the rise and fall of China’s economy, MRU’s videos bring viewers up to speed on what they need to know about economics. And yes, as a non-profit, their resources are free(!) and easily accessible both on here and YouTube. Questions? Ideas? We can’t wait to hear from you.
