Prime Economics

Policy Research in Macroeconomics (PRIME) is a network of macroeconomists, political economists and professionals from related disciplines who seek to engage with a diverse audience in order to de-mystify economic theories, policies and ideas.

We promote John Maynard Keynes’s monetary theory and policies; and highlight the glaring failure of mainstream economics to challenge the finance sector’s role – explained in part by the profession’s blind spot for the role of credit in the economy.

We reject outright the method of drawing macroeconomic conclusions from microeconomic reasoning.
