In the media

“This is a great time to be an economist. It is time we made it a golden age for students of economics.”

Project director Wendy Carlin writes about The CORE Project in the Financial Times

“Traditional courses rarely deal with financial markets, irrationality, or economic history. In [this] curriculum they play a central role very early on.”
