Society Information

The Scottish Economic Society aims to promote the study and teaching of economics on the widest basis - in accordance with the Scottish tradition of political economy inspired by Adam Smith - and to provide a forum for the discussion of Scottish economic problems and their relationship to the political and social life of Scotland.
Successor from 1954 to the Scottish Society of Economists founded in 1897, the Scottish Economic Society supports an approach to economic explanation which acknowledges the human, social and historical dimensions of economic activity. This accommodates a rich variety of positions on theoretical and policy matters.

The Society is a professional body for economists, whether academic or not, which seeks to represent the collective interests of its members in all relevant contexts, and make a positive and informed contribution to economic and political debate, particularly in Scotland. Visit for details of current news and activities.

The Office Bearers comprise the Honorary President, Honorary Secretary, Honorary Treasurer and Editors of the Scottish Journal of Political Economy. These plus ten other elected members constitute the Council, the Society's managing body. The Honorary President is currently Dr Anne Gasteen, Senior Lecturer, Glasgow School for Business and Society, Glasgow Caldeonian University.
