# Brief notes on communicating economic ideas

Hey all. I am doing a short presentation on communicating economic ideas – a bit of an abstract conversation where I talk about it in terms of assumptions. This is similar to last year’s NZAE paper, but focused on only a subset of what was covered.

The presentation can be found here.

It is aimed at people who do economic modelling and have a core framework that they use with other economists. It is about conceptualising the ways we adjust our arguments/models to communicate them to a broader public, and in turn focuses on the types of assumptions we put in place – and the ways economists need to be careful with how these are communicated, so to avoid accidentally misleading or overselling.
