JOIN THE SCIENTIFIC CLUB OF POSITIVE ECONOMICS

What is this scientific club about?
The Scientific Club of Positive Economics is a group of students from the University of Wrocław who are interested in economics. Most of us study economics at the Faculty of Law, Administration and Economics, but among us there are still students from other faculties (e.g. law or sociological economics).

Why Positive Economics?
We are positive economists not only because we approach every subject with passion and a smile on our faces ;) While practicing economic matters, we concentrate on describing economic reality aside from different opinions, views and normative evaluations. We maintain economics wertfrei rule – a science that is free from value judgements (in contrast to normative economics).

Who is our guardian?
Professor Mateusz Machaj from the University of Wrocław – the assistant professor at the Department of General Economic Theory, the founder as well as the main economists at the Mises Institute.

How do we work?
We mostly concentrate on economic discussions. During conversation classes we engage in discussions based on articles, essays and other publications which concern human’s activity in the economy. Besides that, we organize lectures and debates that can be held both by academic teachers and students.

How do we work during the pandemic?
All of our activities have already been transferred to the Internet. On April 12 we held our first e-discussion via Ms Teams platform. Since then, we have held fifteen of such events!

What are our future plans?
We begin with a cycle of discussions directed to the legendary position that has left a significant mark on the entire economic field in XX c. Discussion on “Human Action” by Ludwig von Mises will start on the following Monday 30th of November 2020. We would also like to invite you to the upcoming debate on the topic of behavioral economics. Soon, on our Facebook page there will be detailed information about the debate. We encourage you to follow our profile! In no time, we will continue our series of lectures with the winners of Nobel Award in economics.

Where can you find us?
Above all, you can find us on our Facebook page: fb.com/knepuniwroc. All important information on our activities are right there. Soon we will join the Instagram community too! We invite you to join us! If you are interested in our activities, we invite you to join our club.
