Elmyra Chinje of The Black Economists Network explores the idea of a kind economy and how it could work in practise in this newly commissioned article.

The Black Economists Network

The Black Economists Network (pronounced T-BEN for short) is an organisation dedicated to providing a platform through which professionals and students of African and Afro-Caribbean descent in economics can connect, collaborate, share ideas and support each other. We also seek to challenge the lack of diversity within economics related fields by raising the profile of Black people in economics as well as by working alongside other organisations on their diversity strategies.
