Economics with Justice
A fresh and innovative approach
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 Hove 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.
