What’s this all about?

 

Communicating Economics is a project aimed at improving the communication of economics.

 

We will be providing tools and tips for economists, the media and anyone who works in between. We plan to update weekly.

 

This blog is a response to the cry: ‘Economists need to do better at communication!’

 

Whatever your view on what is going on in the world, economists need to be part of the debate. If that is something you agree with, please join us.

Who’s behind all of this?

 

Communicating Economics is run by economics writer and media consultant Romesh Vaitilingam and Bob Denham of Econ Films, a production company specialising in film and video about economics.

 

 

We have combined more than 30 years of experience in the area of communicating economics.

 

 

We realise there is a limit to what we can do by ourselves – so we have decided to share tools and tips with the aim of helping improve the overall communication of economics.
