Research by members of the Economics discipline at the OU has made its mark in exploring the economics of social issues, in particular in the areas of inequalities, gender, health, social and child care, pensions, tax and benefit systems and financial capabilities.
Our research is not restricted to the economy as traditionally conceived, defined by the boundaries of the market, but explores the intersections of the market with other social institutions. We understand markets as socially produced, subject to and causing change through their interaction with other institutions.
