The Nova Economics Club (NEC) was founded in 2012 by a group of students from the Master's in Economics who assessed the reforms implemented one year after the Memorandum of Understanding had been signed between the Portuguese Government and Troika.
NEC has produced studies evaluating KPI's in several markets, such as Housing and Labour, and in systems, such as Health and Justice. It elaborated reports under the Country Specific Recommendations (CSR) for the European Commission in Portugal, paper replications for the GEE (Gabinete de Estratégia e Estudos) Ministry of Economy and several others, with the support from our experienced faculty at Nova SBE. Today, several research groups are providing Evaluations of Structural Reforms in partnership with the GPEARI - Ministry of Finance and GEE – Ministry of Economy.
Besides economic research, NEC members also write articles for the national newspaper Público and in their own magazine, which has included interviews with economists such as Mário Centeno, Olivier Blanchard, Luís Mira Amaral, and many others.
In addition, NEC organizes events, such as one of the biggest events at Nova SBE: Economia Viva, alongside the Nova SBE Students’ Union, where the aim is to keep the economic discussion alive, reflecting on some of the most important subjects of nowadays. For Economia Viva 2018, some of the featured speakers were the former and current Finance Minister of Portugal, Maria Luís Albuquerque, and Mário Centeno, respectively.
