The Economist's Society is the official student society of the UCL Economics Department. We are dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge and are fueled by a passion for the beauty of theory of Economics. We bring to you a series of distinguished speakers to share our interest in the constantly evolving world of economics and how it interacts with the worlds of politics, technology, current affairs and global issues. More than just an academic society, we also strive to form a sense of belonging and identity with the department and our peers. In short, we are family.
