About us

With support from the King’s Department of Political Economy, the Economics and Finance Society (EFS) publishes the quarterly journal, Perspectives, an award-winning student economics journal at King’s College London. Perspectives offers a platform where students and academics can debate, and learn about how economics can contribute to solving some of the most important issues of our generation.

The EFS is a forum of students, academics and professionals from across London. Through lecture-series with top economists and initiatives such as the London Economic Policy Challenge, jointly held with UCL, LSE and Queen Mary, the society has become one of the main voices within the King’s community.

From events on sweatshop ethics and immigration policy through to the economics of healthcare, education and sex – the society has attracted leading political, business and academic figures. From a policy perspective, the society aims to be impartial and seeks to expose a wide-range of economic thought to scrutiny, both conventional and heterodox.

Motivated in part by the introspection that followed the global financial crisis of 2008 and partly by the explosion of interest in a range of unorthodox viewpoints, the journal promotes critical debate at a time where new, different perspectives are in demand.
