UWI Economics Head of Department Newsletter Message.

It’s exciting to see the publication of the Department of Economics’ first newsletter. Since, as members of the Department, we have a common purpose, it is only fitting that we should have a medium for sharing knowledge and activities. In this way, we will be able to enhance our sense of community and be able to contribute more meaningfully to each other’s efforts.
Collectively, we represent a unique (which is not to say uniform) perspective on events in the society. We are the largest and most important collection of economists in the country. This means that we have a contribution to make as a collective that is separate from our individual contributions. This newsletter will be of some help towards building that sense of community that will facilitate us helping each other and promoting our common purpose. See Newsletter
