About Us

The Marshall Society

President’s Introduction

I am happy to be able to welcome you to the Marshall Society, the world’s oldest student economics society.

I was recently struck by how extraordinary the Society’s history is after reading The Marshall Society’s Archives, stored at the Marshall Library in Cambridge. The Society has always invited illustrious speakers to discuss the most important matters of the day. John Maynard Keynes spoke to the Society on ‘War Potential and War Finance’ in 1939 as the Second World War broke out and ‘Bretton Woods’ in 1945 as the war ended and Prof. Milton Friedman argued ‘The Case for Flexible Exchange Rates’ in 1953.

This year, our aim is to continue this tradition by putting together the most ambitious programme yet of speakers, social, and networking events to make up for all those missed during the pandemic. We will run a blend of online and in-person events, allowing us to welcome speakers who don’t live in the UK.

Furthermore, we aim to keep our members connected with each other, both past and present, through our new mentorship programme, which matches Marshall Society alumni who are willing to offer advice to present students who are keen to learn. The Marshall Society is devoted to supporting our members discuss  economics while developing their networks both at Cambridge and beyond.

I can only hope that 2021 will be one of the Marshall Society’s best yet.
