Economics and Finance

Group Convener : Christopher Pratt

Each month we have informal discussions via ZOOM, with considerable flexibility of subject matter related to our experience of daily life or individual interests. This is not the dismal economic theory practised by the thousands of government economists who are not able to run sound economies. We explore the reasons why some countries, industries, services are run well while some are not. We have for example examined UK housing and land, Brexit, City of London, and across the world subjects like water, transport, China, national health, energy, financial crises, Brazil. No special knowledge or preparation is required. We discuss anything to do with economics. The convener normally prepares some background notes and members often do so, sometimes circulated ahead of the meeting
