Namaste! We are GAEE India
Continuing the Global Association of Economics Education’s mission of reforming and promoting economic literacy across ten countries, GAEE India was established in 2020 to serve the ongoing demand for quality economics education and discourse among aspiring economists in India.
Through the medium of our sessions and discussions, we aim to create an inclusive space for college students to come forth and bridge the gap between economics education and its application. The organization strives to engage students in high-quality workshops and events with the goal of educating its members about the fundamentals of economic theory in practice, personal finance and entrepreneurial skills. We envision opening the gates to this learning group for students throughout India from all backgrounds and majors to further bust the belief that these fields are accessible only to a certain pool of people.
With a drive for growth and a common aim of democratizing economics education, GAEE India (formerly GAEE North India) was founded as the first Indian chapter of GAEE International in August 2020. Over the course of one year, GAEE India has successfully established and monitored 5 chapters in 5 prominent Indian college campuses, namely, Delhi Technological University, Hansraj College, Jesus and Mary College, Jamia Millia Islamia and Lady Shri Ram College for Women. Within the course of an year, GAEE India has conducted numerous training workshops, sessions, quizzes and enriching discussions pertaining to economics, finance, entrepreneurship, consulting and policy issues. We look forward to the continuous growth of GAEE India in the years to come.
GAEE India is a part of the #GAEEforAsia program officially recognized as the SDG Action No. 36897 listed in the United Nations DESA agenda.

Universal Basic Income (UBI)
As the devastating wave of Covid-19 pandemic hit India, the country went into abruptly imposed lockdowns, the Indian economy suffered a severe demand shock and the GDP contracted. Amidst all the chaos, several economists tirelessly suggested putting money in the hands of people, unconditionally. The pandemic sparked the longstanding discussion on the plausibility of Universal Basic Income, globally. A Universal Basic Income is an unconditional fixed cash transfer payment provided to every citizen or resident regularly, by the government or any other institution in the public sphere.

Right to Education: Right Approach?
We all know that the ‘Right to Education Act’ has an input based approach to education where higher emphasis is on the resources implied or the inputs put in rather than the output or outcome achievement.
We are committed to the promotion of economics education, financial literacy, and entrepreneurship incubation for students in developing countries and marginalized communities.
