Term Date: 18 January - 4 April 2021 (half term 15 - 21 February)

Students who have attended the first three terms are welcome to join the Advanced group which meets on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. 

In this Advanced Economics class we will be studying the book 'The Value of Everything; Making and Taking in the Global Economy' by Mariana Mazzucato. The book looks at such questions as 'What really creates wealth in our world? How do we decide the value of what they do? Which activities extract that wealth and which destroy it?' The author is Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value at University College London. She argues that we need to stop feeding an increasingly sick economic system and move towards a type of capitalism that is more sustainable and that works for us all.
