After completing Economics with Justice Part 2: Ideas the previous term
Term Dates: 18 January - 4 April 2021 (half term 15 - 21 February)
This ten-week course explores our individual and collective responsibilities as human beings in the world. It follows on naturally from the course ‘Ideas – Economics with Justice Part 2’.
Responsibility, our ability to respond, is relevant to every aspect of economic relationships with others and with the world in which we live. The course considers what is needed to support this ability to respond, such as understanding, the sense of empathy or interconnectedness, and the extent to which there is recognition of wholeness or unity. This can apply to individuals and to collectives such as communities, nations or even all humankind.
The course progresses with a week by week consideration of individual and collective responsibility in various spheres of economic activity: national economy; capital and investment; finance, credit and money; use of Mother Earth’s resources; energy; international trade, aid and relationships; productive and creative activity; wellbeing and sufficiency; food.
Join further lively discourses on Economics with Justice. Enrol today for January start of term. Classes will be on Zoom, each session being 75 minutes long.
