Notice: Please do NOT enrol on this course on impulse, thinking you might watch it later. Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study but I also want you to enjoy the course.
That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.
You will be very welcome.
This course looks at the current – and potential future – impact on the UK economy of BREXIT. Through charts, we look at the options – and effects – facing the new UK Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson – or ‘Boris’ as he is known to many. (Helped by his previous appearances on quiz shows!)
Topic areas covered include (the Economics of):
Stocks and shares
Unemployment and wages
Throughout, the approach is the same:
Look at the data/chart
Analyse the possible macro/micro economic effects and response
Of course, this course will date so it is important that students turn ON Educational Announcements and also, where possible, take part in discussions.
