War, climate change, rising prices and inequality are today’s headlines. Are these inevitable, or can we start working for a different world, one where we can all find prosperity and freedom?

This vital and challenging question is at the heart of what we offer. So many of today’s ills spring from the prevailing concept of economics being independent of fairness and morality.

This 10 session online course addresses economics as a human subject, the study of relationships between individuals, institutions and communities; based on human values. Come and join us in this fascinating exploration.

What some of our students say...

“I would just like to say it’s been a real eye-opener and also a real pleasure to be involved in the course. I have learned a lot and will look at my participation in the economic system very differently from now on.”
“I really enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone with an interest on how our society and our lives are influenced by Economics. I would like to thank the people who wrote the course and our tutor for delivering the course in an interesting way.”
“The tutor led participants through a developing understanding of the status quo and what it means for people who occupy different positions in society. This was enhanced by the rich contributions from some of the participants which led to an increasingly collaborate and coherent weekly experience.”
“I thought economics was too complicated for me to understand. It needed a degree for sure and [to] dedicate years to understand the complex system. It is complex, but I didn’t realise how much it relates to our daily life activities, how much I am involved in economic activities and how things can be changed and how we must change.”
