Economics in Action aims to show why economics matters by providing access to interviews of leading economics researchers, talking about their work. Each interview has an accompanying article summarising the findings of the research and providing links to further relevant web sites. Economics in Action was set up as a trial for ESRC Social Science Week 2006 as a partnership between SOSIG, the Royal Economic Society and the Economics Network. Economics in Action continues to feature examples of economics research in the popular press and forms part of the Why Study Economics website, aimed at encouraging potential students to take up economics at University.
