Established in 2014, The Economics Society of Shiv Nadar University, extensively known as Ecosoc, constitutes a melange of students brought together by their love for the subject. One of the main objectives of the Society is to extend knowledge and application of Economics as a subject beyond classroom teaching. It is an active space that facilitates, supports and organizes events and conversations about the economic, political and social issues. It has been holding talks, discussion sessions and coordinating a plethora of events apart from organizing an Annual Economics Fest.
The Research and Content Team of Ecosoc, passionate about bringing to the fore the inherent beauty of the field of study is at the helm of fabricating ECONVEY.
We, The R&C team engage to present an atypical perspective on diverse issues as we are attempting to integrate economics with current events, history and investigate various principles and phenomena. We aspire to explore beyond the boundaries of academics and ponder beyond the barriers of the convention to express the essence of the ‘Dismal Science’ through this platform.
#3 Simply Facts
Unlike the original Nobel Prizes (Physics, Chemistry, Physiology, Medicine, Literature and Peace), established by the Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel at the end of the nineteenth century, the economics prize was established by the Swedish central bank (Sveriges Riksbank) in 1968 and is thus officially called the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel. Members of the Nobel family are known to have criticized the Swedish central bank for giving prizes to free-market economists of whom their ancestor would have disapproved.
