From field work to focus groups, interviews to videos, we're asking how you feel about the economy, and investigating how economics can be a positive part of everyone's lives.

Exploring How People Feel About Economics - Research Report 2017

 What if we designed a better 'user experience' for the economy?

Everything we do at Economy is learning. From asking people how they feel about the word ‘economics’ to videos capturing reactions to recent economic stories, to large-scale polling of what we think of the news, we like to investigate the economy.

We're finding out how people experience and feel about a subject that affects us all - read our preview report on how people feel about the economy, and what it would take for them to identify with economics

We think if we explore how we currently think and feel about economics, find out what stops us feeling good about it, and ask people what needs to change, we can develop a way of talking about economics that's more useful, more 'user friendly', and just a little bit more, well, fun.


The research we do at economy ain't your normal economics research. We like to get out more.

Building a case for understandable economics

Through constantly evaluating what we're learning about how people experience economics and how it can be useful to them, we’re looking to identify what needs to change in order to make economics understandable and accessible. By presenting our findings in shareable formats, we’re providing dynamic, honest analysis of how good a job economics is doing at explaining itself.

We think we can find a way of talking about economics which is clear, transparent, diverse, available, and real. 

We’re calling it 'understandable economics' and we’d like you to help us build it.
