This course is pitched at students who have not formally studied Economics but would like to learn more through assimilating it i.e. not actually studying but just ‘picking it up as they go along’. If that is you then this Economics course is ideal!
That is because:
1. The lectures are very very current (July 2021)
2. Assume no prior Economics knowledge
3. Encourage you – the student – to post in discussions
4. Some homework is set (for discussion)
When the European Championship is finished and the economic impact is assessed, lectures will be added.
There are two other sections to this course:
a. The microeconomic impact of football
b. Using one newspaper – in real time – it is explained how, just through reading the news, a vast amount of ‘economics’ can be learned.
