About Socialist Economist

Welcome to Socialist Economist, a platform for analyses and visions on economics, politics, finance and philosophy.


Socialist Economist (SE) is, as our name betrays, not unbiased. Indeed, SE is driven by progressive, leftist, socialist principles. It was founded on the conviction that a thorough understanding of economics is necessary to understand what those principles exactly mean and to bring those principles into practice, eventually.

SE's goal is to provide a platform to a rich diversity of analyses and visions, from an equally rich diversity of authors from all over the world, from an equally rich diversity of other websites, magazines or blogs. Some of the articles focus on current events, some deal with history and some express (economic) visions for the future. We hope all, or most of them, are quite accessible to a broad audience, including non-economists and non-academics.

In short, Socialist Economist is:

☞ Driven by an undogmatic commitment to democratic and socialist principles
☞ Sharing analyses and visions on the world's economies from thinkers across the globe (North and South)
☞ Using clear, straightforward language (no economic degree required)
☞ Nonpartisan and wholly independent in its operations

SE was founded in October 2017 and is publishing each Friday ever since.
