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.

10 weekly sessions

The ten weekly sessions explore central questions through discussion, observation and conversation.

Core themes – Click below to explore the themes included in the course:

We start by exploring the scope of economics, the nature of justice and how justice operates in the economic realm.

We look at the structure of human society starting with the family and how the different elements contribute to the general level of prosperity and freedom. numquam, error, est. Ea, consequatur.

We examine what wealth actually is, how it is produced and how it may be more fairly distributed.

We explore our dependence on the natural world and the importance of our relationship with it for our prosperity and well-being.

We look at the business of making a living and how important work is for our welfare.

This session is about exchange, trade and how the market works. We also explore the limits of the market.

We explore what credit and money are with examples to show how credit can work to enhance our freedom and prosperity.

We look at banks, their role, what happens when things go wrong and how banks can work effectively for the good of the economy.

We look at how taxation works, what its effects are and suggest a more just approach.

We reflect on the term in the light of some of the great philosophical teachings and consider how they may apply to the realm of Economics.

How it works

  • A tutor presents economic and philosophic ideas, and leads a discussion based on what arises in the group.
  • Students are encouraged neither to accept nor reject the ideas put forward but to explore them with an open mind.

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.”
