ERC Vision Statement

The Liberal vision is that of a broadly based social prosperity generated by a market economy and free enterprise, and of a community of individuals with equal human dignity and personal freedom, living in a democracy under the rule of law.

The ERC is dedicated to the fostering of this vision, by spreading liberal economic ideas through public lectures, student outreach, and print and online publications.

ERC Background:

The ‘Economics Research Centre’ a think tank, was founded in 1967 by noted economist Prof BR Shenoy (1905-1978), to support academic and public outreach writings, on economics.

The ERC was revived in 2012 by his well-wishers, with a base now in Mangalore, and with a new mission as an ‘Economics Re-education Centre’, among students and the informed public, by showing how liberal economic principles are relevant to current problems. The ERC welcomes the participation of like-minded thinkers in spreading ideas for a market economy that is competitive and innovative, a society with equal opportunity, and a state delivering good governance.
